A Place to Find Peace


The tranquil setting of the Church of the Atonement Memorial Garden follows the ancient tradition of reserving a special place in the scared grounds of the our churchyard to memorialize a loved one. The Memorial Garden is set amid native Cedar trees, flower gardens and native plants. Benches are placed throughout the Garden for visitors to contemplate, commune or worship in the peaceful surroundings. All are welcome to enjoy the respite of this serene space.


The wrought iron gate and stone wall leading into the garden were donated in memory of the Reverend William S. Lea, D.D. who faithfully and lovingly served the Church for thirteen years. The first Memorial Garden Wall was built in 1987 through the generosity of the late Dr. Margaret Hessler Brookes. The second wall was built in 1996 and the third wall in 2001.


Purchase of a Plot

Plots are available for purchase by Christians and members of their families who have been associated with the Church of Atonement. There are a limited number of plots available on Wall II. Plots have recently become available on Wall III.

The Board kindly request that no flowers be placed in the garden. Individuals may honor their loved ones with alter flowers inside the church.

The care of the garden is supervised by the Church of Atonement Memorial Garden Board. The purchase price of the plot goes toward the ongoing care of the garden. As the cost for such services increases over time, contributions for the benefit of the future perpetual care are welcomed.
