Marian Prayer Garden: Week 3 Progress

September 19th, 2010  |  Published in News

The Marian Prayer garden remaining workdays of Sunday September 19, Saturday September 25, Sunday September 26, Saturday October 2, and Sunday, October 3, are canceled as we have finished what can be done until the boxwood bushes are available (3-4 weeks). Thanks to everyone who assisted with the 5 workdays spent building the garden. A special thanks to Mr. Combs for being my technical expert, we could not have done this without you.

Next Mr. Atlas is planning to pour a four by four footer inside the Celtic wall for the Blessed Mother Mary statue to rest upon. Once the footer is poured we will back fill in around the footer with the dirt left over from our excavation and seed that area too where the dirt pile is at the moment. Afterwards Mr. Guy will move the Blessed Mother Mary statue to her new home inside the garden where she will be refurbished by a contractor who specializes in this field. Then we will plant some flowering bushes inside the Celtic wall along with some seasonal plantings. The plaque in front of the statue will be moved to the garden too.

Fr. John and I are working to complete a dedication plaque for our new garden also. More details will follow.

Thank you,
Dakota Allen
