St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Columbarium and Sacristy
Awarded: Brick in Architecture Award; 2015 Bronze House of Worship Award
The design of the columbarium for St. Mary’s Catholic Church reflects the architectural detailing of the 100 year old church. The covered structure consists of heavy timber beams with brick columns and is large enough for funeral services. The sacristy, a small addition at the rear of the church, provides storage and vesting space. The altar is adorned with a brick and limestone niche for a statuary display. The design provides exterior space for worship and reflection and enhances the church through careful placement within the campus.
