St. Mark’s Columbarium and Memorial Garden is a sacred resting place for those with a connection to our church. It is located outside, east of the Sanctuary, in a beautifully landscaped setting that provides an atmosphere of peace and tranquility to reflect, grieve, honor and celebrate loved ones.
The columbarium provides niches (sacred openings) for the permanent placement of urns holding cremated remains. Each niche holds up to two urns. Church members and their families have the opportunity to select their final resting place near the church which has been central to their lives, a sacred site where their loved ones can visit at any time they visit the church.
The purchase of a columbarium niche eliminates the pressures of choosing a burial site, casket, vault and monument. The niche, the urn, inscription on the niche cover plate, and perpetual care and maintenance of the columbarium are included in the initial purchase price. If a second urn is placed in the same niche an additional opening fee will be charged.
Those who have already made other plans for burial, or who have loved ones inurned or buried elsewhere, may include their names on the Memorial Wall. Additional information and pricing can be found in the Columbarium Packet.
