St. Paul's Memorial Garden
About: Christians have historically laid their family members to rest in the churchyard adjacent to their church, where they can come to pray and reflect on their loved ones’ lives. The Memorial Garden at St. Paul’s was created in this spirit to meet the needs of the members of St. Paul’s and their families. The Memorial Garden is a consecrated place for the interment or scattering of cremains of parishioners and their family members, near the church we love. The garden is located on the northwest corner of the church property.
History: The St. Paul’s Memorial Garden was created in 2016 as the final resting place for parishioners and their families. The garden is dedicated to The Rev. Dr. William B. Lawson, who served as Rector at St. Paul’s from Feb 1965-July 1975.
