Christ Church Cemetery Restoration Project 2021

A Project of the Cemetery Committee, chaired by John D. Wetmore

May you be inspired by this collection of images from the restoration project at Christ Church Cemetery, Lower Woodstock, NB, 2021. This is a project of the newly formed Cemetery Committee chaired by John D. Wetmore, who rallied an outstanding team of dedicated workers. The video is 9 minutes long. It will give an idea of the scope of the work and the energy, enthusiasm, and commitment of the crew. A huge shout out to John, the cemetery committee, work crew, and everyone involved in beautifying the cemetery. God bless you for your support!

A Memorial Service will be held at Christ Church Cemetery on Sept. 12, 2021, at 3 pm. In the event of inclement weather the service will be held inside the church. Refreshments will be served and you will have an opportunity to wander through the cemetery and step inside the church. This slide presentation will be played inside the church so you will have an opportunity to view it there and chat with committee or crew members. We hope to see you then!

Christian Burial
Christ Church Cemetery

A Christian Funeral is a time when we pause before the mystery of death and life. Funerals are an expression of faith in our salvation, resurrection and eternal life. As such, we come to worship God and rejoice in the new life he has given us beyond death. We also gather to thank God for the gift given to us in the person of the deceased. Funerals also express the community support that is shown at a time of death as we pray, sing, laugh and cry together.

The burial takes place following the funeral service.  Below is information on acquiring a plot at Christ Church Cemetery, in the Anglican Parish of Woodstock.

Burying Cremated remains at Christ Church Cemetery

What does the Anglican Church teach about cremation?

A funeral can be held with the body present before cremation or with the cremated remains in an urn on a table near the chancel steps.

The remains of our loved one should be reverently buried in consecrated ground, as soon after cremation as possible.

The scattering of ashes is not an option in our liturgies, and if a family decides not to bury cremated remains in consecrated ground, the Priest is not required or expected to be present.

Cremated remains may be buried in an existing grave, with the consent of the family concerned, and in accordance with our cemetery guidelines.
