Interfaith Memorial Service

The staff of the William J. Burke & Sons/Bussing & Cunniff Funeral Homes realize how difficult it is dealing with the holiday season for the first time following the loss of a loved one. For this reason, we extend our thoughts to you during this season. Also, in memory of all those served this past year, we invite you to an inter-faith Memorial Service and tree lighting on Tuesday, Dec. 5, 2023 at 7 p.m. 

The service will be held at a NEW LOCATION: the Saratoga Springs United Methodist Church, 175 Fifth Ave., Saratoga Springs. This service will be a gathering ministered by local pastors and rabbis, as well as singing and playing of both Jewish and Christian music. This memorial will attempt to give you a chance to start the season with prayer for both you and your loved one.

Following the service, there will be a tree lighting ceremony, which will extend everyone an opportunity to place a memorial ornament on the tree. The ornament will be provided and a reception will follow in the church fellowship hall.

We do wish you the best during this holiday season. Feel free to call the funeral home number listed if you need local transportation to and from this memorial ceremony. 


Mark Phillips, Tom Armer, Dan DeCelle, Nick DeCelle, Jeremiah Thompson, Stephanie Nelson, Anthony Morris, and Melissa Shipley (518-584-5373)
