Last Tuesday, November 1, 2022, All Saints Day, the church dedicated and consecrated our new Terrabarium at the Memorial Cemetery of St. John’s Church.
Now fully planted, this project is the culmination of several years of once-in-a-generation improvements at our beautiful and historic cemetery which included the Terrabarium, new monumental signage and the rehabilitation of the Olmsted character of the cemetery. The project was begun under the leadership and enthusiasm of former cemetery committee chair, Mary Lee Citrino. It was completed under the watchful eye of Cemetery Superintendent John Papa and the leadership of Cemetery Committee chair James Sanna. Of course, our partners in the design, Heritage Landscape Architecture of Vermont, and our partners in construction, Koran Landscaping of Northport, deserve our thanks as well. All were present for our dedication.
Now completed there are over 200 hundred new burial areas for cremated remains in a design that is the first of its kind in the nation. It is a unique and beautiful addition to the cemetery and I hope you will find some time in the near future to visit our cemetery and enjoy the beauty of the Terrabarium.
