The St. Francis by the Sea Columbarium is located behind the Church sanctuary. Those desiring niches must be past or present members of St. Francis by the Sea, Holy Family Catholic Church or immediate family members of a parishioner.
The Columbarium provides a reverential place for inurnment of our beloved deceased. It reposes the ashes of those who have crossed over to eternal life in a setting close to familiar surroundings in which they worshiped. To the living it provides a garden spot for visitation, remembrance and prayer, as well as a setting for liturgical and sacramental services.
If you are interested in purchasing a niche in the new columbarium, the top two rows are $5,200 and the bottom two are $5,000. We are currently calling those parishioners who are on our wait list. Please be patient as we work our way through the list. Please note that each niche holds two urns.
Thank you to all who have followed the policy to use 4" terra cotta pots for their real and artificial arrangement. Any ornaments, trinkets, statues, or golf paraphernalia left on the niches will be removed unless they are included in the 4" pot. Anything removed will be brought to the parish office.
