The name “Columbarium” is from the Latin word columba, meaning “dovecote,” the dove being a symbol of God’s spirit and peace.
The church has traditionally been the natural repository and final resting place of deceased members of the Christian community. Burial within the church itself, or in the adjacent churchyard, was once a customary practice. Cremation historically has been a widely accepted means of burial among most religions, and with increased urbanization and ecological awareness, it continues to gain acceptance, particularly with the development of aesthetic, well-designed Columbaria that provide lasting memorialization.
The Columbarium at The Church of the Epiphany is a quiet, meditative place to honor loved ones. All are welcome to visit.
