St. Paul’s Memorial Garden & Columbarium

columbarium-612-portraitThe Memorial Garden is a place for the interment of ashes in simple dignity and in surroundings that proclaim our resurrection faith. The Memorial Garden is in an area adjacent to the southeast corner of the rear of the Chapel. An expansion of St. Paul’s Memorial Garden has been completed as of Oct 12, 2014, to include a columbarium, remembrance walls, and new slanted markers.

To reserve a plot in the Memorial Garden, to reserve a niche in the Columbarium, or to have a name engraved on a Remembrance Wall, contact the church office, stpauls@stpaulscary.org, or Jackie Straub, jmpstraub@aol.com
