Columbaria are stepping stones to the past and to the future. They help us to remember, and to be remembered. Concerned with establishing a resting place for our loved ones, Trinity Church built a columbarium, which was dedicated in 2010.
Our Columbarium is a beautiful granite structure in a lovely outdoor setting in Trinity Gardens, next to the church. Its quiet design invites solitary contemplation as well as the gathering of families and friends for prayer and remembrance.
Unlike remote cemeteries, the setting offers constant reminders of the tender and eternal bond between the deceased and their church family. Each niche will be engraved with the name of the deceased with birth and death dates. Owned by Trinity Church, the columbarium will be maintained in perpetuity.
Niches in the Columbarium are available to anyone desiring a Christian burial. The purchase of a niche offers families the benefit of making arrangements without the pressure of time.
The cost of a niche at this time is $1500 for single use and $3000 for companion use. One can be reserved with a $100 commitment payment, which will be applied towards the purchase of your niche.
