Blessing of columbarium

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q: The columbarium at our parish has just completed and the building committee has been searching for blessing of columbarium texts which we have difficulty in finding. We need your wise advice as always. Thanks.


A: You’ll find some direction in the Book of Blessings. Chapter 43 is the Order of Blessing of a Cemetery. Normally a bishop leads the rite, but he may appoint a priest to do so.
