The Franciscan Columbarium is located directly beneath the Garden of Peace, in the Franciscan Sanctuary, at the Church of St Mary of the Angels. It was designed as a peaceful retreat, a place not only for the ashes of loved ones but also for prayer and quiet contemplation.
Ten 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.
Niches holding the ashes of the deceased are set in a pattern resembling the alternating bricks of a wall, a reminder that the Church is made of the living stones of its people.
You can also have the name of your deceased relatives or friends engraved onto the Gates of Life at the main entrance of the columbarium, even if you do not have their ashes.
La Verna Wake Room is adjacent to the columbarium and can accommodate up to 80 people.
Transitus Wake Room is level one opposite Gubbio and can accommodate up to 60 people.
