Our goal is to add more pavers every three to four months, as we collect new requests. There are forms on our website and in the rectory office for your convenience. This is a wonderful way to pay tribute to your loved ones.
While bricks for our Prayer Garden can be obtained at any time, those wishing to have bricks by Memorial Day are asked to call the rectory without delay to place their orders. Details and information can be obtained by calling the rectory and asking for Maureen. Cost is $110 for a four by eight inch brick and $200.00 for an eight by eight brick.
