By now all those who already have the ashes of their loved ones at a parish columbarium, or who have booked a niche for future use, should have received a letter from their columbarium.
This letter was accompanied by the official text of the new Terms and Conditions Governing the Use of All Parish Columbaria in the Archdiocese of Singapore. The letter explains how the new Terms and Conditions affect your use of the Columbarium.
You are kindly requested to sign the Reply Form and notify your Columbarium of your agreement.
If for any reason you wish to terminate your use of the Columbarium, you should indicate this in the Reply Form and return the same to your Columbarium by 20 February 2012, failing which you shall be deemed to have agreed to the new Terms and Conditions.
The new Terms and Conditions were formally approved by the Senate of Priests and Archbishop Nicholas Chia on 24 November 2011 and promulgated as “particular law” of the Archdiocese for all parish columbaria – without any exception whatsoever – to observe. They will take effect on 1 March 2012.
Therefore, if it should happen that you have not yet received the letter and the accompanying documents, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR COLUMBARIUM immediately.
If you have any queries relating to the letter or the new Terms and Conditions, please call the dedicated Hotline at Tel no. 6656-2428. Hotline hours are Mondays to Fridays, 9am to 1pm, except public holidays. The Hotline will run until 20 February 2012.
NOTE: The Franciscan Columbarium, located at the Church of St Mary of the Angels is not owned by a parish and does not belong to the Archdiocese. As such, it has its own set of Terms and Conditions which, basically, are consistent with those in force for ALL parishes of the Archdiocese.
