St. Columban Prayer Garden
Blessed on November 23, 2020, the prayer garden reflects the collaborative efforts and donations from parishioners. In conjunction with rebates from the Annual Catholic Appeal, a statue of St. Columban was purchased and installed. This was later followed by a the installation of a paved pathway lined with donated bricks, forever memorializing both our current and former clergy, parishioners, and their families.
Work on the garden continues with plans to add Outdoor Stations of the Cross, a Privacy Fence, and Benches. If you would like to purchase a memorial brick or donate a bench, please click on the link to download the order form.
