Memorial Plaque Program
The Holy Rood Chapel and Garden Mausoleum in the Cemetery of the Holy Rood, Westbury, adds greatly to the beauty of the Cemetery and offers another sacred area for each of us to pray for all who are interred or entombed in the Cemetery.
The Chapel is used for entombment services and for regularly scheduled memorial Masses. Visitors to the Cemetery use the Holy Rood Chapel for prayerful reflection.
Many requests have been received from those who wish to have memorials for the deceased members of their family. At the present time we can offer families the opportunity to memorialize their loved one on a bronze stone to be installed at the base of the memorial tree at the entrance to the chapel or on a wooden plaque as part of the beautiful wooden artwork displayed in the vesitbule behind the chapel.
If you wish to purchase a memorial, you may call the Catholic Cemeteries office at 516-334-7990 or visit the Cemetery of the Holy Rood. The office is open from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday and from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon on Saturday.
Our staff, who give courteous and efficient service to all the families of our deceased, will consider it a privilege to assist you.
