For nearly sixty years, Holy Comforter has been a gathering place for Christians to worship together, pray, mark life’s transitions, and serve the community. With the establishment of our columbarium, common crypt and labyrinth, we surround ourselves with generations of faithful saints whose ashes bear lasting witness to their hope and faith in the resurrection. Ground for the columbarium was broken in spring of 2014, the columbarium and altar were consecrated on All Saints’ Day 2014 and the courtyard and labyrinth were dedicated on All Saints’ Day 2016.
The Columbarium and Labyrinth at Holy Comforter provide a sacred space of prayer and contemplation where the cremated remains of the departed find peaceful rest and loved ones interred elsewhere are memorialized.
The Columbarium Offers:
- Wall niches (single or double) for placement of cremains
- Common Crypt beneath the altar – a permanent resting place for those who choose not to have an individual niche
- Memorial Cross Plaques to remember those close to our heart

A labyrinth is a tool for prayer and meditation: a prayer of movement. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to walk a labyrinth. You might begin by stating to yourself, “Quiet the mind, open the heart.” At the entrance, stop, reflect and pray about your intention for the walk you will take. During your walk, let go of your worries and concerns. Upon arrival at the center, pause and be silent, as you feel the love of God guide and embrace you. The walking out takes you back into your life, empowered by God’s grace.
