Memorial Tree

Updated: Feb 14, 2022

Remembering members of our Centenary family who were a part of Centenary’s 125 years of ministry…

During Centenary’s yearlong 125th Anniversary Celebration, we would like to remember members of our Centenary family who are no longer with us, but were a part of Centenary’s 125 years of ministry.

Leslie Kitashima-Gray created a Memorial Tree that will grace our sanctuary in 2021 and 2022. She put the first leaf that is “blowing” from the Memorial Tree in honor of Moonza Kitashima during her mother’s Celebration of Life. We invite you to also add leaves for your loved ones as you tape them on the walls of Centenary’s sanctuary.

· The leaves may have…

· In loving memory of _____

· In memory of _____. With love, _____

· An open-ended message or memory

Feel free to submit remembrances for one or more of your Centenary family and/or friends.

You may also call the church at (213) 617-9097 to leave your remembrances.

Vicky Leon will print your responses on separate leaves and email or call you to confirm the spelling. You will have a chance to put your leaves on the walls before or after any of the Sunday services before October 23, 2022. If you are not able to come to church, we can put your leaves on the wall for you.

Go to and see the video of Leslie placing the first leaf for the Memorial Tree and other leaves that are on the sanctuary’s walls to remember loved ones.
