Prayer Garden

Come visit our Prayer Garden dedicated to the memory of Msgr. Liam Minogue. It was created by the contributions of people who wanted to honor his memory when he went home to God.

It is a place for quiet prayer and meditation where the statue of Our Blessed Mother stands atop a free flowing fountain of water, signifying the stream of grace and peace that comes through her intercession.

The garden also contains the large bronze cross that stood on top of the Church before its renovation. At the foot of the cross there is a bronze statue of Jesus come down from the cross to embrace and console a woman in tears as he did for Martha and Mary. This wonderful statue Beyond Tears is the creation of Canadian artist, Timothy P. Schmalz, who also designed all the statues in the Gathering Space particularly that of the Family of Mary, Mother of God.

The Garden is located at the entrance to the Parish Center.
