Special Services of Remembrance

Mount Auburn hosts two annual services to commemorate those we have lost. Both events combine readings, speakers, and music and are open to the public.

  • Service of Commemoration.
    Each year on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend we gather on Bigelow Chapel Lawn to remember the dead. The program includes the names of those for whom in memoriam contributions have been made throughout the year.
  • Candle Lighting Service.
    Because we know that the holiday season can be particularly difficult for those in mourning, we offer a special service each December. This joyful event is an opportunity to light a candle in honor of a loved one.
