As you know, the Rosary is a well known devotion. A Rosary Garden is a Rosary constructed on the ground made out of concrete, bricks or stones, and garden plants; a peaceful environment ideal for meditation or quiet reflection.
The Rosary Garden is composed of stepping stones that take the place of beads, five large stones and 50 small stones that together makeup the Decades of Christ's Birth, Life, Death, and Resurrection. Every element of the Rosary Garden comes together to make a spiritual retreat for parishioners.
After passing through difficult times and praying to the Lord, our parishioner, Mary Rodriguez, found herself receiving the Lord’s peace after walking through a Rosary Garden in the State of Oregon. Now, Mary wants to bring that peace and beautiful idea to our parish.
St. Patrick’s Church is blessed with a lot of land and God has given us the ability to do something beautiful for present and future parishioners. We are planning to build the Rosary Garden with donations from families or individuals that would like to request a memory brick engraved with their family name. It would be wonderful to walk and pray the rosary as we see everyone’s names who made this possible.
If you would like to make an online donation, you may do so below by selecting PayPal or Online Giving.
Please continue to pray for the needs of our parish community and may the Lord bless everyone who is volunteering their time and talent to make this Rosary Garden possible. Order a custom-engraved brick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
