The 14th Annual Christmas Ecumenical Memorial Service will be held in the Chapel on Thursday, December 4, 2014 at 7:00 PM. We invite you to join us in this memorial service as we honor the memory of all who are interred in Woodlawn or any other cemetery. Following the service and tree lighting, a collation will be held in Patton Hall. Co-Celebrants for the service will be Reverend Thomas Coots and Father Vincent Gianni. At 6:30 a music program will commence. The gates will open at 6:00 PM; seating is limited and may not be held for late arrivals. This program is not recommended for children under 12 years old.
