The Columbarium

Sacred Heart Cathedral Church is blessed with a beautiful and sacred space for its columbarium. It is located behind the South transept of the Cathedral and is a return to the tradition of burial on church grounds to be near our family and faith community.

The columbarium is a return to the tradition of burial on church grounds to be near our family and faith community. When cremation is chosen as an option, the dignity we show to our bodies as the temple of the Holy Spirit still includes an obligation to make arrangements for the burial of the ashes. The natural beauty and tranquility of its location enhance the experience of being in the presence of the communion of saints. The garden is designed for contemplation, prayer, and reflection.

If you have questions regarding the columbarium, you may contact Scott Barron (865.300.6078) or via e-mail at columbarium@shcknox.org.
