Columbarium at St Augustine's

Many have expressed the idea that a Columbarium be placed in the Memorial Garden which is to the left side of the church. A Columbarium is a wall which has niches in which the funeral urns of a loved one can be placed.  If you would like to be part of the committee to plan this effort, please see Fr. Thornell or call the office and leave your name.
