Columbarium and Memorial Prayer Garden & Bricks

Columbarium and Memorial Prayer Garden & Bricks

Saint Bernadette Catholic Church and Memorial Prayer Garden offers the option of a burial site on church grounds, close by the sanctuary in which the deceased once worshipped.  The garden provides a peaceful setting for loved ones to spend time in prayer and remembrance.

The Columbarium has 300 niches, each capable of holding the remains of two people.  Inurnment typically occurs immediately following a funeral Mass but can also be scheduled as a separate ceremony. The rites of the Catholic Church are followed at inurnment, and a brief prayer service is conducted by the priest.

We work closely with local funeral homes and cremation societies to ensure that the remains of the deceased are treated respectfully and in concordance with Canon Law.

Lord Jesus Christ,

by your own three days in the tomb, you hallowed the graves of all who believe in you and so made the grave a sign of hope that promises resurrection even as it claims our mortal bodies.

 Grant that our brother/sister, may sleep here in peace until you awaken him/her to glory, for you are the resurrection and the life.Then he/she will see you face to face and in your light will see light and know the splendor of God, for you live and reign forever and ever. Amen!

“Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them”.
