The Design and donation in 2008 of Patrick’s Place, the Apostles’ Memorial Garden and Columbarium, was by the Reinhart family in loving memory of their son Patrick. In addition to providing memorial niches, the Garden serves as a special place for joy and serenity. If a couple desires an outdoor wedding on church grounds, the garden provides a beautiful setting. It also hosts parish receptions, fellowship events, and concerts open to the community. It offers daily refuge to parishioners and visitors alike for countless hours of prayer and meditation.
Patrick’s Place Columbarium serves as a final resting place for the internment of parish members and their immediate family. A small number of niches remain available. Request a FAQ sheet from the church office with answers about reserving a niche or other related inquiries. The Columbarium and Memorial Garden has a supporting endowment fund to safeguard its preservation. A Patrick’s Place Guild consists of church members who lovingly tend to the garden and watch over it in prayer.
Patrick’s Place is truly unique. It sits in a secluded area of the church grounds, yet still in the midst of the hustle and bustle of a thriving and growing city. We are truly blessed to have this treasure at Church of the Apostles, and thus, everyone is invited to come and spend some time in the Garden. We feel that this is a holy place – a place to rest in the Presence of the Lord – a place of solace and comfort, of encouragement and joy.
Come and experience God’s Peace in Patrick’s Place!
