Columbaria

Eternal Rest Where God is In All Things

The Ignatius House Columbaria is a place for cremated remains — where we contemplate a life’s journey, the shared love between us and God, and the glorious promise of Jesus’ resurrection. 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.

 

All are welcome at Ignatius House, where they will be surrounded by active prayer on consecrated ground. This sacred site of beauty and dignity is a place where loved ones can visit, meditate, walk tails, enjoy river views, and discover God in all things — triumph and tragedy, joy and sorrow, silence and soft breezes.
