Day of Remembrance

September 22, 2018, 5:30pm7:00pm

Remembrance is a unifying force when the pain of separation is validated and shared. This special evening embraces both the sadness and wisdom that stems from the loss of a loved one. With carefully selected poetry and music, we will share a beautiful series of rituals designed to heal and restore. The evening will conclude with the lighting of memorial lanterns at sunset and launching them onto Valley Water, a glacial pond near Green-Wood’s historic chapel.


Whether you have experienced loss recently or years ago, and whether your loved one is interred at Green-Wood or not, you are warmly invited to join us. Family members and friends may attend together, although everyone will find companionship with the others in attendance. 


Free to attend, RSVP recommended. Please register using the Eventbrite box below.
