Plan for the future...
As a reminder, St. James has Columbarium Niches available in the Meditation Garden. This area has created a beautiful place for prayer and remembrance and provides an
appropriate burial place for the cremated remains of our faithful departed.
The garden is a place for memory, comfort and support as a telling witness to the faith and hope of resurrection to eternal life.
A niche in either Columbarium is available for $1,500.00.
Proceeds received from the sale of niches will be placed in the St. James' Endowment Fund.
Please contact Terry Eastin at email email@example.com for details.
