Derived from the Latin word which means “dwelling place of a dove,” a columbarium is a structure with niches that can house the cremated remains of those who have passed on. They provide a spiritually meaningful place where families can memorialize their loved ones. Columbarium Planners helps churches and cemeteries by designing and building columbariums. While all of our columbariums are unique and no two are alike, let’s go over four different personalization options that you may choose if you have one built.
1. Peaceful Garden Spaces
If we are designing and building a columbarium for you that will be located outdoors, as the vast majority of them are, then you may choose to have a peaceful garden space. We can include benches for rest and reflection as well. Since most columbariums are located outside, we are very meticulous in choosing materials that will stand for generations.
2. Labyrinths for Prayerful Reflection
We can design your columbarium with labyrinths for spiritual encouragement or prayerful reflection. Rest assured that the columbarium will not be not a sad space, but a sacred, joy-filled space, exuding peace and the presence of God.
3. Memorial Plaques
Every niche holds two urns so that the cremated remains of family members can be together. Many people choose to include memorial plaques, which can be personalized with your favorite scripture.
4. Classroom Space
Including classroom space for Bible study or other studies is another option for your columbarium. Every piece that we include in the construction is completely custom, and we never use any pre-fabricated construction in our projects.
