Columbarium Services

This group of several volunteers takes on the responsibility of assisting at Parish Inurnments by preparing each niche, prior to the farewell ceremony, to receive the urn of the deceased, and re-closing the niche at the end of the ceremony. Additionally, members transport Columbarium Niche Covers to Frederick, MD for engraving and back again to the Columbarium for installing on their designated niches.

If you would like to participate as a volunteer for this ministry, let us know.
