New St. Brendan Columbarium Addition

All through life, the Catholic Church is present to the living by baptizing their young, celebrating their growth and development, blessing their marriages and praying for them during times of illness. Since death is a natural part of life, it is only fitting that the Catholic community be present at the time of death. Burial in a Catholic cemetery or columbarium is a statement of continued belief in that everlasting life, even in death.

The Saint Brendan Columbarium is a sacred space, a prayerful place of reverence, and a place to remember and honor the devout. Catholic cemetery grounds are consecrated. These sacred grounds are an extension of the Catholic Church. We have begun building our new phase. If you would like to purchase a Columbarium niche please call Rusty in the office at 910-754-8544 ext. 6.

Please remember there should not be decorations on the stones, i.e., stickers, rosaries, flowers (real or artificial), or any kind of tape as the glue may ruin the stone. Also no statues should be placed inside the columbarium. These guidelines are so the entire Columbarium will look neat, clean, and uniform.
Musically Speaking

The St. Brendan Sanctuary Choir is always looking for new folks to join our ministry. We rehearse on Tuesday evenings from 6:00 to 8:00 pm and sing three masses a month from September to the end of May (Pentecost). We do a mini concert before the Christmas Eve Mass; sing at the Easter Vigil, sing for Confirmation, and some years do a Lenten Cantata. If asked to participate in some community events we take part in that, too. We are a group of dedicated folks who work hard and laugh a lot. 

If interested please contact Sandra Gemach at 910-371-3961 (home) or 910-620-0092 (cell) Please leave a message and she will get back to you.Or email: [email protected] Thank you.
