ENGRAVED BRICKS AND PAVERS, STAINED GLASS WINDOWS MEMORIAL CAPITAL CAMPAIGN OPPORTUNITIES
The continuation of our Capital Campaign offers the opportunity for memorials recognizing family, friends, loved ones, and special occasions and events, while contributing to the preservation and improvement of our Church.
The recently completed expansion at the main entry of our Church, provides an area for placement of engraved bricks and pavers. Options include laser engraved bricks or personalized engraved red sandstone pavers for inclusion in a prominent setting at the entrance to our Church. Please contact Joe Miranda at
for more information on the bricks and Tony Fink at
for more information on the pavers.
There are unlimited options for memorials with the stained glass windows. Memorials are available in the Brass Stained Glass Recognition Book in the Upper Center for the existing windows in the Nave of our Church depicting Evangelists Luke, Mark and Matthew. This same recognition can be acquired for the new St. Francis window to be located in the entrance to the Nave, and for a general donation to the stained glass. An engraved brass plaque will recognize sponsors of the new windows to be located in our Church’s Divine Mercy Wing. The windows represent The Last Supper, The Agony in the Garden, The Scourging at the Pillar, The Crowning with Thorns, The Carrying of the Cross, The Crucifixion and Jesus Laid in the Tomb; all representing Jesus’s life and his love and mercy for us. The Scourging at the Pillar and The Crowning with Thorns are still available to be sponsored. Please contact Fran Grooters at
for more information on the stained glass options.
These memorial projects for parishioners and visitors will become a part of our Church history, and a lasting tribute for loved ones in inspirational and distinct settings. Donor brochures and order forms are available outside our Church office.
St. Ignatius of L
oyola will be
offered in October.
It is a directed
retreat requiring a s
erious daily time
for nine months.

Internet fraudsters have been scamming parishioners by sending emails and text messages which appear to come from parish priest asking for help by purchasing gift cards and sending the pin number on the back of the card. Neither the pastor nor any member of the staff will ever make this request.
If you receive this type of email immediately contact the local police as well as the Federal Trade Commission at ftccomplaintassistant.gov
