Memorial Garden Agreement

Within steps of our church ia a beautiful memorial wall and garden. Having a memorial space is an ancient Christian tradition of providing a resting place for the sacred remains of loved ones. The space is a peaceful place for contemplation and renewal for the living and is a tangible reminder of the communion of saints both living and departed.

The Memorial Garden was created for members of Saint Andrew’s Lutheran Church.

  • The columbarium wall has 168 niches for urns.
  • The cenotaph wall can accommodate 32 engravings (for those wanting to remember a loved one but not place cremains within).
  • There is a one-time fee; no ongoing costs.

The reservation’s purchase price includes the costs of a simple urn, opening and closing a niche, a niche’s shutter, and engraving on the columbarium or cenotaph. It does not include the cost of cremation nor any other associated costs. The purchase price is not considered a charitable contribution to Saint Andrew’s.
