In the podcast, we talk about the cremation process and the trend to build columbaria at Catholic churches, including the one at St. Thomas the Apostle in Lenoir City. I also mention the new columbarium at my uncle’s parish, St. Edward the Confessor in Richmond, Virginia.
I was pleased that the podcast caught the attention of nationally-known Catholic blogger Frank Weathers. He wrote a great post entitled “Does Your Parish Have a Columbarium Yet?” In addition to a plug for the podcast, Frank provides information about the columbarium at St. Mary’s Church in Oak Ridge.
Frank’s and Fr. Christian’s are not the only Catholic websites to give me a mention this week. Catholic Charities of East Tennessee posted a very nice write-up about my victory in the Host with the Most Competition. They also made me their featured volunteer of the month.
