Archbishop Emeritus Harry J. Flynn Dedicated the Peaceable Kingdom Garden at Resurrection Cemetery Chapel Mausoleum.
The pavers laid in the patio of the Garden are each available to be inscribed with name and dates of a person that was loved and whose relatives wished to remember them in a special, enduring tribute. The garden surrounding the patio serves as a place of prayer and reflection for anyone seeking comfort following a loss, and the gardens have now been lovingly dedicated and are open to all seeking a place of solace, peace and remembrance.
