Planning Your Future

We recently added 100 niches to the Columbarium and there are only 46 niches left. The niches are $3,500.00 for two people which includes the price of engraving of the stone and two urns. There are plans to increase the size of the Columbarium in the future and due to construction price increases, the purchase price will be more. If you are interested in purchasing one or more of the remaining Columbarium Niches, please call Rusty in the office, (910) 754-8544.

Prayer of St. Brendan the Navigator
"Help me to journey beyond the familiar and into the unknown. Give me the faith to leave old ways and break fresh ground with You.

Christ of the mysteries, I trust You to be stronger than each storm within me. I will trust in the darkness and know that my times, even now, are in Your hand. Tune my spirit to the music of heaven, and somehow, make my obedience count for You." ... Amen
