St. John Marie Vianney in Silay City, the First Shrine and Columbary in Western Visayas

Introducing the first columbary project in Western Visayas – the St. John Marie Vianney.

St. John Marie Vianney is a Shrine and Columbary located inside the 5 hectare Domus Dei Complex, a project of the  Diocese of Bacolod City.  Other development inside the complex are Dormitory, Gazebos, guest house, multi-purpose gym, activity center, swimming pool and a Hospice for the retired, old and sick priests of the Diocese of Bacolod.

A Columbary is a consecrated place where the bones or cremated remains of the deceased be placed with the name and date of birth and death recorded. The Vatican lifted the prohibition forbidding Catholics to choose cremation in 1963.

Construction of the St. John Marie Vianney Shrine and Columbary are now on going, and is projected to be finished in 2013.  There is also a chapel at the second floor and columbary in the ground floor.



Why buy a columbary? Here are the reasons:

 An opportunity to bring in love one remains from other places and put  it in one place.

A practical preparation for those who are inclined to be cremated.

A columbary in the chapel where Holy Mass are to be said everyday.

It is located in an accessible location and has a big ground with amenities.

In buying a unit or two, you are also helping and supporting the Domus Dei complex and especially the retired and sick priests of the Diocese of Bacolod.
