From the beginning of the Church’s life, Christian burial has been an important and integral part of the life of the parish community. The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ put an end to the power of death; thus followers of Jesus believe that death is but the entrance to new and eternal life with Him. We wait in joyful expectation for the resurrection of the dead. Accordingly, Christians show a proper reverence and respect for the body which awaits that resurrection.
The clergy, staff and people of Incarnation offer their caring support and expertise to individuals and families through those first difficult days. This care begins with the planning of the funeral to celebrate the life of your loved one, while still leaving space for grief and sorrow. We believe that all people are a gift from our Creator, and all people are received into the arms of our loving God when they die.
The Incarnation Memorial Garden is a place of tranquility and peace. It is a sacred space for the burial of the ash remains of Incarnation parishioners and their families.
The Memorial Garden is located in the courtyard at the center of the church. The names of the deceased, with the dates of birth and death, can be listed on an individual cast bronze nameplate on a bronze plaque mounted on the wall of the church building.
