Now Underway... Columbaria Construction Builds Eternal Serenity

Ignatius House is pleased to offer a place of eternal rest for those who wish to remain under the loving care of the Society of Jesus. The Ignatius House Columbaria, a place for cremated remains, will be where we contemplate a life’s journey, the shared love between us and God, and the glorious promise of Jesus’ resurrection.


Scheduled for Completion Early 2020

As of Jan. 1, 2020. Subject to change.


The Ignatius House Columbaria will be next to the small chapel adjacent to the Retreat House building – nestled into the hillside. The space offers a private and prayerful area, surrounded by natural and landscaped vegetation.

Four sections of wall, each approximately 8 feet in height, offer a total of 160 niches. Each niche is capable of preserving two urns.

This project was originally conceived to hold 360 niches next to the St. Ignatius Chapel and parking lot. The location has been moved following further examination of the site, its impact to the natural forest, and the need for a quiet, reflective place on property for loved ones as they visit.



Construction began Oct. 1, 2019 and is expected to be complete approximately 60-90 days later and no later than Dec. 31, 2019*. At this time, we anticipate that inurnment of ashes may begin in early 2020.   *Due to rain delays, this project is expected to be complete in early 2020.
