Memorial Garden

St Rita's Parish Council will be installing a memorial garden on the parish grounds, which will feature bricks that can be purchased and engraved to honor loved ones or commemorate important dates or events.

The garden will be installed on the 80th Street side of the church building, which will beautify this open space and will provide easy access from our chapel and for those with mobility issues.  Landscaping and plantings will provide privacy screening from the street while people are in prayer or peaceful contemplation in the garden.

You can read more about the memorial garden project, and find the order form here.
