FUNERALS & COLUMBARIUM
At Prince of Peace Catholic Church, engaging in the corporal work of mercy to bury the dead is a sacred duty that reflects compassion and reverence for those departed from this life. By the offering of a funeral liturgy and a dignified final resting place within our columbarium, we honor the inherent worth and dignity of each person, affirming the belief that even in death, every individual deserves respect and a final resting place of peace as we hold firm to the hope of the resurrection.
If you have lost a loved one, please know that we extend our deepest condolences to you and your family for your loss. If you are planning a funeral for a deceased loved one, or if you are interested in pre-planning a funeral for yourself, we are here to assist you.
Please call the church office at 205-822-9125 to schedule a funeral planning meeting with our Liturgy Director, Cheri Poole. Below are links to our Funeral Planning Guide and Planning Worksheet. Please review the guide and complete the worksheet and bring it with you to the planning meeting.
The columbarium on our church campus provides a sacred space for the respectful burial of cremated remains. Inurnment on church grounds offers a lasting connection between the departed and the church community and is a visible statement of faith in eternal life. It reminds us that the church ministers to the spiritual needs of its members from baptism through life to death. The columbarium and adjacent prayer garden offer a sense of spiritual continuity, remembrance, and comfort for members and their families.
