Columbaria

In The Narthex and In The New Courtyard Prayer Garden. A Columbarium is a respectful place for urning the ashes of loved ones above ground. From earliest times people have been concerned about their final resting place, especially that it be near the gathering place to their families so that each may he held in lasting, loving remembrance.
