New columbarium installed

The participants in the weekly rosary for vocations were surprised to see the long discussed and much anticipated columbarium installed to the right of the
Holy Spirit altar behind the Founders' tomb in the crypt.

The bronze receptacle for created human remains (a.k.a. ashes) can house 32 canisters (4 rows across x 8 rows high). Depending on how popular (?) cremation is among Society members, a second columbarium [from Latin word "columba" meaning "pigeon", resembling the nesting boxes in a pigeon coop. I guess.] will be set up on the opposite wall.
