Saint Joseph Catholic Community


A columbarium witnesses our faith in the resurrection and life everlasting. It is a resting place for the cremated remains of those who loved the Church. It reminds us of how the church ministers to the spiritual needs of its members, from baptism through death into eternal life.

A columbarium supports and nurtures the Corporal Works of Mercy through appropriate interment, respect, reverence, dignity, and hope of the Resurrection. 

A newly constructed columbarium will reside on sacred grounds of the Historic Sykesville Church in Downtown Sykesville. It is a granite structure installed on a concrete patio surrounded by stone walls and landscaping.

Our columbarium has six sides consisting of three tiers, each housing twenty-four niches for a total of seventy-two. Each niche is 11” x 11” x 11” and holds a maximum of two urns and includes a customizable solid bronze plaque.

Each solid bronze memorial includes space for up to two names, dates, and one personalized line of text of your choosing. The final death date is included and will be ordered upon the death of the individual(s). 

If you are interested in finding out more about the Columbarium at the Historic Saint Joseph Church in Sykesville, please email [email protected] or call 443-920-9191 to leave your name and number, and you will be added to the list to be contacted at a future date.  

If you had already expressed an interest in the Columbarium in a church survey done last year, you will be contacted in the coming months.
