SERVICES WE OFFER
What makes St. Margaret’s Cemetery the unique and special place it is are the services the cemetery provides, many in conjunction with the efforts of St. Margaret’s Church parish. These services provide a wonderful opportunity to remember and memorialize your loved one.
Annual Interment Remembrance
Many families often mark the anniversary of their loved one’s passing by visiting their grave and bringing flowers. In collaboration with the parish of St. Margaret’s Church, the church invites the cemetery families, regardless of denomination, to attend Sunday church services and worship as they remember your loved one in prayer on their anniversary date. The cemetery will extend an invitation to this memorial remembrance annually.
Each year on the Saturday prior to Holy Week and Christmas, St. Margaret’s Church offers special holiday memorial services for the families and friends of loved ones buried in St. Margaret’s Cemetery. These popular and well-attended candlelight services provide a meaningful and spiritual opportunity to remember your loved ones during the hectic holidays.
NOTE: The Easter Cemetery Memorial Service will take place via ZOOM on Saturday, March 27, 2021, at 4 p.m. Registration is required. Please call or email the Cemetery Office.
Christmas Grave Blankets and Easter Palm Crosses
As a convenience for our cemetery families, Christmas blankets and Easter palm crosses are available for purchase prior to the holidays, if requested. Whether you live locally or out of the area, you can be assured your loved one’s grave will be adorned in the holiday spirit. Placing of the blanket or cross is included in the purchase price. Palm Crosses are now available through March 10, 2021, at $22 each. Please call the Cemetery Office to place an order. (516) 692-5268
Remembering Our Veterans
If your loved one proudly served our country, the cemetery honors and recognizes those years of service by placing American flags graveside each Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day.
The Tree of Life
Upon entering the entrance of St. Margaret’s Church, you will encounter a large, beautiful memorial, The Tree of Life; a simulated tree trunk carved in walnut with three walnut branches and satin brass leaves which not only commemorates church parishioners but many loved ones from our cemetery families. Lovingly handcrafted, the tree “leaves” and “rocks” can be engraved with the name of your loved one along with a brief sentiment. Please visit the cemetery office for further details.
