Want a Brick?
When we were able to have visitors at Queen of Peace many often commented on our Memorial Brick Wall Garden running in front of our unique landscaping in the front of our Home. These bricks lovingly recite honors to the living and memorials to deceased family, friends, Sisters and organizations. It is always a heartwarming experience to stop and read some of the brick inscriptions. Love is the real cement that holds these bricks in their beautiful formation.
When you purchase a brick from us, the revenue goes directly to fund the specific capital project we have in place for the year the purchase is made. We have not been promoting this opportunity recently. This was intentionally done with good reason. The brick company we were using to produce the bricks went out of business. To find another brick company that could match the exact dimensions, color, and font used on our bricks proved to be quite a challenge. We finally found Brick Markers, USA, located in Florida, who matched our existing bricks perfectly. To keep this process interesting, once we engaged them, they were shut down for a period due to the pandemic.
We are pleased to say that we were able to place a brick order last week for 67 new bricks to be installed. We look forward to their delivery to us so the wonderful tradition of our Memorial Brick Wall Garden may continue.
