    Does anyone know whether there is a Mass for the dedication of a Columbarium? I presume there is a rite for consecrating a cemetery, but I have been unable to find anything along these lines for a Columbarium.

    This is something we will need to sing in August, so any input would be most welcome.

    While failing to find a simple answer to your question, I came across this nice picture of two Catholic bishops, one latin rite the other byzantine rite, jointly consecrating a cemetery. image

    The 1962 rite for a cemetery is on this page. It seems to say that Mass will be the Mass of the day.
