University Memorial Garden

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us... Hebrews 12:1

For many, University is a place where you have served throughout your life and consider your church home and it is our goal to provide a special place for you. Located outside the Atrium, the University Memorial Garden will be a sacred place for prayer, reflection, and a final resting place for mortal remains.

In addition to a columbarium, our Garden has a baptismal font with beautiful walkways and benches to provide a time of remembrance, prayer, and reflection. The columbarium is an arrangement of stonewalls with openings where urns that contain cremated remains of you and your loved ones can be permanently placed. Faceplates on the niches will be engraved with the names and life dates of those interned. There is also an opportunity for you to memorialize others who have been buried elsewhere.

If you have any questions about a Niche, Memorial Plaque, or Bench, or if you are ready to make a purchase, please get in touch with Debbie Vignes at 210-696-1033 or email at
