The Columbarium

The Columbarium is located in the Chapel of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. There are 660 niches of black granite arranged on the north and south walls of the Chapel, with the altar and tabernacle beneath a baldacchino at the east end. Just inside the entrance is a depiction of St. Francis with a reminder of our mortality. Mass is offered in the Chapel each weekday (Monday through Friday) at 7:00 a.m., and the souls of those interred here are prayed for each day. There is Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament each week beginning at 7:30 a.m. on Friday and concluding at 7:15 a.m. on Sunday.
