The Columbarium Garden of Life
A columbarium is a place for the respectful and usually public storage of cinerary urns (i.e. urns holding a deceased's cremated remains). The term comes from the Latin columba (dove) and originally referred to compartmentalized housing for doves and pigeons called a dovecote.

For countless generations people of faith have sought solace from their holy places and at the end of their days have found it fitting to be placed near that core of their spiritual experiences. To be in or near the physical center where they had found knowledge of God, peace and forgiveness in troubled times and experienced joy in worship and fellowship seemed understandably of profound significance.

When our lovely chapel was designed and built, a Columbarium was also designed to accompany it. However, because of state laws existing at the time it was never constructed. In 2002, that dream has finally became a reality. An open garden setting graced with shade trees, benches, a soothing fountain and an inspiring, original bronze sculpture houses the five hundred and four burial niches. An ornate entryway gate of wrought iron opens into the courtyard of gleaming eight feet tall interior walls of petal pink granite. Not only an extraordinary place of honor for our loved ones but an inviting atmosphere for those those who wish to pray and meditate.
