The Gardening Ministry is happy to announce the completion of plans for the construction of a Memorial Garden in which parishioners may purchase memorial bricks with custom inscriptions to memorialize their loved ones, living or deceased.

A very limited number of custom inscribed 4X8 and 8X8 inch bricks will be sold after all Masses each weekend starting November 6 through December 31. Please look for the Memorial Garden Brick Sales table in the Gathering Plaza after each Mass. The attending Gardening Ministry member will assist you in ordering your custom inscribed memorial brick. There are less than 330 bricks available for purchase, so don’t delay!

The Gardening Ministry would like to thank Fr. Nick for his enthusiastic support and the Parish Stewardship Council for their positive endorsement of this project.

UPDATE November 8, 2021

The memorial garden construction team has had to change the layout pattern of the bricks in the designated area because of changes in the availability of certain construction materials.  This change had the beneficial side effect of removing the limitation of 30 8X8 bricks.  We are now only limited by the total area.  However, since the total area has not changed, the more 8X8 bricks are purchased, the smaller the space available for 4X8 bricks.  We will be closely monitoring the quantity of each size of brick purchased so we do not sell more than what will fit in the total area.


An 8×8 brick without clipart will have up to 6 lines, each line up to 20 characters per line. (This includes letters, numbers, punctuation, and spaces.)

If clipart is selected, write in the number and description on the order form. Bricks with clipart will have 4 lines up to 20 characters per line.

Each 8×8 brick is $300.  

After you have compiled your wording and optional clipart, please bring your form and check or cash to the Memorial Garden table to finalize your brick request.

There will be a table set up outside before and after Masses starting November 6th. (Saturday evening 5:00 pm and Sunday 7:30 am, 9:00 am, and 11:00 am.) 

We will review your request form with you to ensure we have everything correct. 

There are also 4×8 bricks available. All forms will be available at our Memorial Garden table. First come-first served.
