Options to commemorate the beloved deceased, now present in mystery, ensure that those who have gone before us are remembered within various celebrations, events and actions throughout the year.
The Beloved Dead
The beloved dead entombed and memorialized in the columbarium are remembered in a special way within the Eucharistic celebration at St. Gianna’s Church on the first Sunday of every month. The deceased are also remembered within the celebration of the Feast of All Souls and throughout the month of November, the month during which we celebrate our beloved dead. 40th day anniversaries are also remembered within the columbarium. Opportunities for special remembrances are also possible at Christmas and Easter. These are shared seasonally.
Throughout the year, the beloved dead in the columbarium can be remembered and celebrated through our floral tributes, 7-day vigil candles and mass requests.
7-Day Vigil Candles
Living Waters Columbarium is pleased to offer vigil candles in memory of the beloved deceased entombed or memorialized in the columbarium. The candles are lit on Friday morning and burn for 7 days, holding vigil for our beloved deceased. In the lighting of candles, our prayers become symbols of the One Light of Christ. They rise up to Heaven day and night, in the presence of our beloved deceased, whom we know and love in mystery. Each vigil candle is accompanied by a photo of the deceased for whom it is lit.
Our memorial flowers are arranged in vases, and come in a variety of flower types and sizes. The arrangement, along with a photo of the deceased, is placed on a table near the niche of the deceased.
*** Please allow at least TWO business days prior to your requested date in order to process and display your flower arrangement. (Please note: our offices are closed Sunday and Monday). ***
