St. Thomas Memorial Garden and Columbarium
The 49 niche Columbarium in the St. Thomas Memorial Garden.
The St. Thomas Memorial Garden was officially begun in 2012. Throughout that year, funds were raised and plans were made, which came to fruition in the spring of 2013. On Sunday June 9, 2013, the first phase of the memorial garden development was dedicated at our end of year St. Thomas day celebration. Phase two, the re-building of the wall into the courtyard, was completed in August of 2014. Phase 3, the installation of the stained glass, was completed in February of 2015. Currently, we have 49 niche spaces which can be bought to hold 1 or 2 urns each.
