Jim Rozier says it is the best deal around. Rozier, the former Berkeley County Supervisor, is talking about the columbarium at Mepkin Abbey, which sits peacefully along a gravel walkway with an oak-tree lined grassy knoll on one side and sweet grass plants on the other.
Since the monks are often busy and have little contact with the outside world, Rozier oversees columbarium activity. He has been involved with the Mepkin community since he was a child. “The goal is for the columbarium to blend in and become part of Mepkin,” Rozier said.
There are single and double columbariums available, the latter of which allow two people in the same spot, such as a husband and wife. The columbarium is four levels high on one side and two on the other.
