A columbarium, in early Rome, meant simply a nesting place for doves. When Christians, relegated to Rome’s catacombs, began using cliff-side niches to seal away ashes of the faithful who died, the term “columbarium” took on its present meaning: sacred compartments for storage of cremated remains.
The prayer garden offers a special place for private prayer and meditation, a time of sacred renewal. Inside the prayer garden, there will be a labyrinth, which is a form of walking meditation used by Christians as a spiritual tool for nearly 1,000 years.
