What is a Columbarium?

A Visible Reminder

A columbarium houses urns of cremated ashes. As cremations become more common, Good Shepherd Church built a columbarium at our Verona campus in 2014 to provide a peaceful final resting place for members and friends of the church. Many members have already purchased a niche to relieve loved ones of the need to handle these arrangements. Each niche in our columbarium can hold two sets of ashes, and can be purchased at any time. Niches range in price from $2000 to $2500 and this fee includes interring the remains and engraving the granite faceplate. If you are interested in purchasing a niche or just learning more about our columbarium, please contact Rick Blum at (608) 271-6633 or rblum@gslcwi.com. Please feel free to visit our beautiful columbarium at any time.

Memorial Pavers Available

Memorial pavers are also available around the columbarium niches and gardens. Pavers can be purchased to honor or remember a loved one, or simply given to the glory of God. Pavers cost $200, and for installation in 2019, must be ordered by July 15th. Order forms are available at either campus, or by contacting Rick Blum at (608) 271-6633 or rblum@gslcwi.com.
