Annual Candlelight Memorial Service

For more than ten years now, Crestlawn Memorial Park and D'Iberville Memorial Park Cemeteries offer a very special tribute to those loved ones who have gone before us but are not forgotten. The management and staff of these two cemeteries take very special care to prepare a remembrance service which involves placing and lighting of a memorial candle on each loved ones grave space located at these cemeteries. Prior to the sun going down at dusk, a brief but very spiritual remembrance service is conducted after which lighters are handed out for attendees to help light a candle on each and every grave of a loved one. When the sun has fully recessed, the beautiful glow of these candlelight's, create and absolutely breathtaking unique tribute. This event is lauded as one of the meaningful to those whom have been able to attend. This service is open to anyone who would like to attend. This event typically is scheduled in early December and most likely the first or second weekend of December. Please check by this webpage for the dates of this year's events, look for notices in the local newspaper, or email us your address so that we can include you.
