Columbarium and Prayer Garden
The Trinity Columbarium and Prayer Garden is located at the front of the church property overlooking Mobile Bay, between the Sanctuary and the Administrative Wing.
Columbarium, in early Rome, meant simply a nesting place for doves. When Christians, relegated to Rome’s catacombs, began using cliff-side niches to seal away ashes of the faithful who died, the term “columbarium” took on its present meaning: sacred compartments for storage of cremated remains.
The prayer garden offers a special place for private prayer and meditation, a time of sacred renewal. Inside the prayer garden there will be a labyrinth, which is a form of walking meditation used by Christians as a spiritual tool for nearly 1,000 years.

Joe Comer IV, of Espalier Landscape Architecture, has designed Trinity’s new columbarium and prayer garden. By combining the prayer garden with the columbarium, we broaden the use of this holy ground.
