Situated directly below the Garden of World Peace at the Church of St Mary of the Angels, the spacious columbarium is designed as a peaceful retreat, a place not only for the ashes of loved ones, but for prayer and quiet contemplation.
Nine interconnected rooms, each named after a Franciscan Saint, lead off a central corridor and are airy and bright with natural light from skylights that open to the garden above.
The niches holding the ashes of the deceased and inscribed with their names, are set in a pattern resembling the altering bricks of a wall, a reminder that the Church is made of the living stones of its people.
