Funerals, Memorial Services, & Interment
Funerals, Memorial Services and Interment
The ministers and staff have a sincere desire to ease the pain and stress associated with making arrangements for a memorial service or funeral.
Members of the Church are encouraged to discuss their wishes and make them clearly known to their family. Ministers are available to provide advice and counsel to members and their families at any mutually agreeable time.
Interment in the Memorial Garden
The Memorial Garden was designed to provide a special place for prayer and meditation, worship services, weddings and baptisms and for interring the ashes of our beloved dead.
Past and present members of The Congregational Church of New Canaan and their immediate families (i.e. their parents and their children) are eligible for interment. Ashes will be placed in the garden proper. No container may be used. No marker is permitted except for the standard granite marker, the cost of which will be borne by the family or estate of the deceased. The granite marker should be created according to guidelines available in the church office.
