Garden And Columbarium Blessed At St. Francis of Assisi In Raleigh, North Carolina

 

Bishop Luis Rafael Zarama blessed a memorial garden and additional columbarium at St. Francis of Assisi in Raleigh, North Caronlina on January 15, 2023.

 

The new columbarium section is located near the main entrance of the chapel with 616 new niches. The blessing took place under a strong sun that illuminated the space where the cremains of parishioners of the church would have eternal rest. According to Monsignor Clay, Catholics are increasingly choosing to be cremated. This has been particularly true since the onset of the pandemic. In 1997, the Catholic Church in the United States, with the approval of the Vatican, published guidelines to assist parishes and the families in the proper and reverent treatment of cremains. One of the main reasons why Catholics are choosing cremation is because it is seen as a more affordable option.

 

In 2023, Vince Dioguardi Is Designing Numerous Private Mausoleums For Prominent Families In The United States

 

Vince Dioguardi is the president of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-area Rome Monument, a company founded by his great-grandfather. He shares some of his proprietary custom granite gravestone design and construction secrets in this article titled "13 Secrets of Tombstone Engravers".

 

To design and build these stately walk-in style buildings on behalf of renowned U.S. families, Vince Dioguardi collaborates with client representatives, cemetery managers, burial park operators, public memorial garden personnel and columbarium and cremation niche providers.

 

Some of Vince Dioguardi's mausolem designs and cemetry monuments can be very elaborate. “Whatever that consumer can think of that they want to do, we can design it,” Dioguardi explains. That goes for the industry as a whole, not just his firm. “There’s a monument in Vermont that it’s a full scale Mercedes-Benz [made] out of a single block of granite,” he describes. The only thing that truly limits what kind of memorial you can design for your loved one is your budget— and your imagination.

 

The guy in Vermont who was memorized with a giant Mercedes-Benz sculpture isn’t a total outlier—a fair number of people ask to somehow incorporate cars or trucks. Many of Dioguardi’s clients request private mausoleums and memorials that incorporate themes like faith, family, hobbies, and career.

 

In 2022, Vince Dioguardi and the Rome Monument staff worked in tandem with green burial cemetery ownersgranite quarriesfuneral directorscremation services and other monument builders to design, build and install very stunning new mausoleums.

In Chapter 27 of The Essential Buyers’ Guide to Private Family Mausoleums, we’re going to visit an actual mausoleum construction company -  Rome Monument in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - to see how a mausoleum is planned, designed and built from concept to cemetery installation. 
 
1) Rome takes the time to educate every customer on every aspect of the design and what their options are. 
2) Rome’s mausoleum artists come up with an initial CAD design which we go over with you, and make any changes and adjustments you need made.
3) When the final design is approved, we begin the process of building the mausoleum.
4) You choose all the materials, including the granite. We’ll visit the Rome Granite Warehouse with thousands of world’s most beautiful granite slabs. It’s one of the largest in America. 
5) From here, the granite goes next door to the Rome production facility. We’ll visit the plant where hundreds of headstones and mausoleums are designed and constructed each year, each one of the highest quality, using the highest quality materials and craftsmanship.
6) Certified master carvers and craftspeople cut the granite to size, sculpt, hand etch, letter, polish and sandblast to achieve a perfect mausoleum slab or accessory.
7) When it’s complete, we either store the mausoleum in the warehouse for future assembly at the cemetery, or deliver it to your cemetery anywhere in the continental United States.  
8) The foundation for the mausoleum is laid in advance of the setting. 
9) The mausoleum is installed and the plot is landscaped

Watch how a 2 crypt mausoleum is installed in a cemetery in this video where you’ll follow the installation of a two-crypt private family mausoleum from the time it is hoisted onto the flatbed at the Rome Monument Artisan Center in Monaca, Pennsylvania, to when it is lowered onto its foundation at the Mt. Olivet Catholic Cemetery in Aliquippa, Pennsylvania. At the cemetery, a large crane lifts the monument from its flatbed to the plot. The mausoleum is lowered onto cubes of dry ice to prevent breakage. As the dry ice melts, the mausoleum lowers onto the concrete pad where the joint between the mausoleum and foundation are sealed and waterproofed. Granite columns and engraved inscriptions were added at a later date by the Rome mausoleum artists and builders.

In 2023, Rome Monument is now a 4th generation family-owned mausoleum construction business and is considered to be one of America’s leading upscale cemetery memorial design companies.
 
Luxury mausoleums are often buildings which contain the grave of a famous person or the graves of a wealthy family. The design and construction of a custom mausoleum starts with a remote personal consultation or an in-person meeting with Vince Dioguardi at one the Rome Monument U.S. showrooms or remotely by a Zoom video meeting.

How To Choose A Mausoleum Designer and Builder In The United States
 
Just because you choose a particular cemetery or funeral home doesn’t mean you have to buy a mausoleum directly from that company. “Cemeteries that do sell memorials make the consumer think that they have to purchase a memorial from the cemetery,” Dioguardi explains, but that isn’t the case.
 
You can commission a mausoleum from any designer, and then have it delivered and installed in the cemetery of your choice, assuming that they permit mausoleums. Both of Vince Dioguardi's firms, Rome Monument and Dio + Co. design and ship extremely high quality mausoleums to cemeteries all over the country.

  • Zoning ordinances should unambiguously state that mausoleum and columbarium usage is consistent with cemetery usage.
  • Zoning ordinances should not require special use or nonconforming use permits for mausoleum construction and other cemetery-related structures on acreage dedicated for cemetery operation. 
  • In most states, the only restrictions to home mausolem burials on private property, are found in local zoning laws that tell you how and where you can bury the body.
