COLUMBARIUM: A place for the respectful and usually public storage of cinerary urns (i.e., urns holding a deceased’s cremated remains)

A Columbarium serves as an appropriate place for the earthly remains of our loved ones. The most important reason for having a Columbarium is the comfort, peace, support, and witness it provides for friends and family members. The concept of interment in consecrated church property is an old one, dating from the very beginnings of Christianity and is sound for both theological and practical reasons.
