At Trinity Episcopal Church Rocky Hill, we honor our fellow parishioners and family members.
In 1999, the Vestry of Trinity Episcopal Church Rocky Hill commissioned a comprehensive landscaping plan for the church property to keep the memories of loved ones alive. The plan for our Memorial Garden was developed by landscape architect Jane O'Neill Spectre and includes walkways and stones that form the crucifix. The Memorial Garden was dedicated on All Saint's Day 2000. On All Saint's Day 2001, more than 30 newly-installed trees and plants were dedicated in memory and honor of family members, friends, and clergy.
Throughout the Memorial Garden there are reminders of our loved ones. Stones, benches, plants and trees, even the altar and the fence itself stand as tributes to the lives and souls that have gone before us. This is a sacred, quiet place for reflection. Our outdoor altar allows for seasonal services and commemorations.
We would like to acknowledge, with gratitude, the contributions of our local Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, whose help made the creation of our Memorial Garden possible. Some members of Girl Scout Troop 60015 from Montgomery High School completed their Silver Award because of their contributions to our Memorial Garden. (The Silver Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn). They created a directory box that contains a binder full of information about the people who have been memorialized throughout the garden on paver stones, benches, and plant stands. It gives visitors to the Memorial Garden the chance to learn about their ancestors, Trinity Episcopal Church Rocky Hill parishioners, and community members. The Cadettes also made bluebird houses for the garden to attract more birds. A member from Boy Scout Troop 46 laid the grating and did the stone work around our altar area for his Eagle Scout Project. We appreciate their efforts and are grateful for their service to their community.
