The purpose of the Columbarium is to provide a place for the inurnment [the placing of one (1) or two (2) urns with the human cremated ashes into a niche].
The Paynesville Lutheran Church Columbarium consists of niches 12-1/2 inches by 12-1/2 inches by 14 inches (deep). Each niche has an exterior polished granite faceplate on which the name of the deceased as well as the year of birth and year of death is engraved. The urn or urns will need to be of a size to fit into the niche. Identifying markings (name, the year of birth and year of death) will be needed on each urn.
To purchase a niche, applicant will fill out the application, purchase agreement and Engraving Order Form. If there are questions the applicant may arrange a meeting with a member of the PLC Columbarium Committee. The application and purchase agreements should be turned in to the church office.
Niches will be assigned by preference of the subscriber, based the date of the application.
