What is a columbarium? A cabinet with many niches that hold cremated remains.
The cemetery board surveyed the parish in the spring of 2019. Of the 120 respondents, just over 50% were “interested” to “very interested” in purchasing a niche.
Recently we have a few inquiries about the status. Therefore, we thought it was time for an update.
The board has been gathering information to create a columbarium garden in the cemetery. At this point we have costs and plans on cabinets, foundations, landscaping and funding, with a goal to construct next spring. The next steps are to have the cemetery board approve the full project plan, present the plan to the Archdiocese Building Commission in mid-October, then get final approval from the archbishop.
If you have any questions or would be interested in making a donation to the project, please contact the rectory.
Thank you, The Cemetery Board
