A New Place for Reflection The City
Peace Garden

When demolition began on the First Baptist Church in St. Petersburg last year, many wondered why the beautiful old building was being destroyed. They didn't know it was the beginning of a transformation.

After being vacant for many years, the renovated church sanctuary will become part of the City Peace Garden, the largest all-faiths columbarium in the Tampa Bay area.

Complete with a meditative garden, fountain and gazebo, the space will offer 2,000 glass-fronted niches inside the sanctuary, restored to preserve the magnificent entrance including the portico and columns. Another 1000 granite niches with bronze plaques will be located in the garden itself.

The second gift is one of memory; we will never forget them. One of the myths of grieving is that we should become detached from the person we love, that over time the memories will fade and the love is removed from our life.
