Roselawn 1891 Foundation Events
The ceremony opens with an outdoor mass held in the Bishop’s section followed by the laying of patriotic wreaths in the Veterans Section representing each branch of service and honoring the Veterans who have served our country.
Due to COVID-19 we decided to postpone this indoor event.
This celebration originated with the Latino culture but is celebrated honoring everyone whose final resting place is Roselawn Cemetery. The purpose of the celebration is to remember our loved ones who have passed before us.
Participants walk to the angel statue, the pathway is flanked with luminaries, a candle light ceremony is held and participants walk back to the office caroling, then place an ornament of remembrance on the Christmas tree and enjoy refreshments.
More than 1,600 locations participate in the Wreaths Across America mission and wreath laying ceremonies take place in all 50 states, at sea and abroad. Roselawn is proud to be one of the 1,600 participants and everyone is encouraged to take part.
