Columbarium

A Columbarium is a sacred place for the inurnment of ashes of beloved members of our parish and the wider community. The Columbarium at Julian of Norwich Anglican Church is located along the walls of our Chapel of Christ the King. There are 160 niches on each wall with oak doors, a four-inch oak spacer beneath the doors and two cherry wood crosses inlaid in each wall. It is financed and administered separately from the parish.

We are blessed indeed to have this Columbarium. It exists not only as a tranquil haven, a peaceful place, but also as a vibrant place of worship. The remains of our loved ones are never alone or forgotten in this most Holy of places.

A niche in the Chapel of Christ the King costs substantially less than at a cemetery. The niche price includes opening and closing of the niche, an inscribed brass plate, and a perpetual care and maintenance fee that is placed in a Trust Fund. Our Columbarium is registered with, and is governed by, the Cemeteries Act of the Province of Ontario, and we are required to submit an annual report to the Ministry.
