This ceremony offers families an opportunity to pause and reflect on fond memories of departed loved ones.  Getting together helps us keep fresh thoughts of our departed loved ones and allow us to fully appreciate friends and family members still with us.

The Vigil will consist of the sounds of bagpipes echoing throughout the park, a soloist singing songs of hope and love, a short sermon by Chaplain Kenneth New.  This year we will focus more on the memories and the music.

We recommend all families attending bring their own lawn chairs or blankets as well as umbrellas just in case of light rain. Also, we ask that all families park in the designated parking area that will be close to the main office lawn. Staff members will direct you to the parking area.

Please let us know of any family or friends you would like to attend this special occasion. Please call Scott LeBlanc at 774-276-1751 or email Scott at s.leblanc@wcmp.org  if you or a guest would like to attend the ceremony.
