The columbarium at Serenity Hill
Mo-Ranch is a sacred place where, for generations, individuals and families have gathered together seeking worship, fellowship, relaxation and renewal. Serenity Hill allows these visitors an opportunity to memorialize their loved ones, surrounded by these sacred grounds and their faith in the form of a columbarium.
What is a columbarium?
A columbarium is a physical place of remembrance and celebration of life. It is a permanent structure designed with recessed compartments, referred to as niches, for placing urns containing cremated remains.
Where is the columbarium at Serenity Hill located?
Serenity Hill is located in the beautiful outdoor setting of Mo-Ranch, just below Chapel on the Hill, connected by a pathway leading to Inspiration Point. The columbarium is located in close proximity to Chapel on the Hill.
Who is Serenity Hill available to?
Mo-Ranch is an institution of the Presbyterian Church (USA), but has always welcomed people of all faiths to enjoy this beautiful place. In the same spirit, Serenity Hill is open to all.
Celebrate your loved one(s) in the following ways:
Designed in the shape of a cross, the columbarium provides niches for urns around the perimeter of the cross itself.
The cross has niches measuring 8x8″, or 12x12″ each. Each niche will accommodate one or two urns. The face of the niche will be engraved with the name, birthdate and date of death of your loved one(s).
Serenity Hill provides many places for those preferring in-ground interment of the urns. Each site is marked by a stone engraved with the name and dates of birth and death. Certain areas consisting of multiple in-ground interment sites may be reserved for use as a family interment site, where family members may be interred in the future.
Scattering Ashes and Memorial Plaques
Serenity Hill provides opportunities for ashes to be scattered at Mo-Ranch.Those choosing to scatter ashes will be provided an engraved brass memorial plaque that contains the name and dates of birth and death of the deceased.
People can also elect to honor the memory of persons who are buried elsewhere by providing for a memorial plaque. Special places on the walls of the pavilion or adjacent thereto are set aside for the permanent display of these special memorials.
