WHAT IS THE OUR LADY OF THE ROSARY COLUMBARIUM?
For many Catholics cremation is not fully understood and in some cases people still do not think it is allowed however cremation has been allowed for Catholics since 1963. The Parish at Kenmore - Moggill has its own Columbarium which is a place were we as Catholics lay to rest our loved ones after cremation. The Columbarium wall at the Kenmore Church was built over 25 years ago and it stands on the Moggill Rd side of the Kenmore Church, accessible for family and community to visit and pray for those gone before us. The wall has an additional area for plaques to be displayed dedicated to the deceased as a memorial. You can have a permanent place in the parish community by having your ashes interred in the sacred space of the Columbarium or have your loved one, who is interred elsewhere, memorialised with a plaque. Click here to download a brochure about the Columbarium. The brochure will explain the process for those wishing to purchase a niche or plaque for themselves or for a loved one. We trust that this important parish facility continues to provide an opportunity for the faithful departed to have a holy place amongst us. For further information please contact Michael Finch at the parish office. The brochure is also available in the Parish Facilities section of this website.
