Creating the Columbarium Garden for Our Lady of Victory Church
A few years back, Acsent created and installed Our Lady of Victory’s Columbarium Garden, in their cemetery.
Located in Delhi, Our Lady of Victory Church has had a long 180+ year history on the West Side. With numerous additions to their school building, church and cemetery over the years, we wanted to make their new columbarium as timeless as the rest of their parish.
A columbarium offers family and friends an opportunity after the funeral or memorial service, to come back and visit a deceased love one. For Our Lady of Victory’s Columbarium, we created two granite containers, with granite benches placed on each side. Each of these columbariums contain 48 niches, that can each hold 1-5 urns. As urns are added over the years, the niches are engraved with the deceased names by Acsent.
Acsent worked closely with Our Lady of Victory to plan and coordinate the final design and installation. The columbariums were fabricated and assembled at one of our monument manufacturers plants out of state and shipped to us completely assembled. Once delivered, we assisted with the on-location installation and final setting.
We’ve done a variety of projects with Our Lady of Victory over the years, and we thank them for allowing us to work for their church. If you’re ever at their school or church, take a moment to visit their columbarium and their new prayer grotto.
Below are a few photos showing the installation process, and the finished columbarium.
