3 Benefits of Building a Columbarium in Your Community
A columbarium provides a sacred space to house the urns of those who have passed away. Every family understandably wants to honor their loved ones in a way that best represents their legacy, and Columbarium Planners helps them do just that. We help churches and cemeteries by designing and building a final resting place for the urns which hold the cremated remains of community members. We will show you three benefits of building a columbarium in your own community, at either your church or a local cemetery.
1. A Columbarium Provides a Peaceful Final Resting Place
Since cremation has overtaken burial as the more popular choice, there will continue to be a higher demand for a final resting place for the cremated remains. An outdoor columbarium may contain gardens and other landscaping features that contribute to this beautiful space for remembering and honoring the legacy of loved ones. There can also be space for prayer and meditation.
2. A Columbarium is Practical in Today’s Itinerant World
A columbarium is a practical choice for people who have to frequently move around, or who hope to end up living in a different place at some point in their life. In today’s increasingly mobile society, placement of cremains in a columbarium allows the option of relocating loved ones’ remains as families move or decide to place the cremains in the care of different family members.
3. A Columbarium Helps Those with More Limited Resources
A columbarium provides a spiritually meaningful place where families can memorialize their loved ones when financial circumstances make earthen interment difficult or impractical. Or, perhaps there is limited availability of conveniently located cemetery plots, and the family needs another option for a final resting place.
