St. Mary’s Columbarium provides a consecrated resting place at our church for urns containing the ashes of deceased parishioners, their families and former members of our parish.

Our columbarium was fabricated of Minnesotan Carnelian granite and is located in a garden setting at the turnpike entrance of the church. The garden site is designed to provide the location for a second columbarium when needed. Each columbarium contains 96 niches and each niche accommodates the ashes of two people, for a total of 192 persons. The subscription cost for a niche is $2,000 and includes two bronze urns and a memorial plaque for each niche.

The columbarium is maintained by a Columbarium Board appointed by the Pastor and operated in accordance with By-laws and Operating Procedures approved by the Diocese. In addition to Father Bede Aboh, the Board Members are: Ronald Bugos (865) 483-6794, Chairperson, Lawrence O’Rourke (865) 938-9691, Treasurer, Cande Seay (865) 483-3993, Secretary. If you are interested in subscribing for a niche, contact one of the Board members or the Ministry Center (865) 482-2875 for information or an application package.
