The purpose of the National Shrine of St. Thérèse Columbarium is to provide a place of rest for the cremated remains of those who wish to be inurned on these holy grounds. We believe in the resurrection and inurnment at the National Shrine implies a similar belief on the part of the deceased. Please click on the "Columbarium" button for more details about Columbarium niches.
