Our Lady of Grace Prayer Garden Quilt Raffle
Our Lady of the Valley Catholic Women’s Club has taken on the project of creating an outdoor prayer space dedicated to Our Lady of Grace, the parish patron. A couple of years ago, due to generous donations of many parishioners, we purchased the solid white marble statue (that is already in place in the stone shrine). We decided it needed a special place and contracted with a landscaping company to help us come up with a design. The design, approved by the parish council, is contained in the attached document (see link below). We divided the project into phases so as we raise the funds we will move toward the finished garden. To date we have completed moving the playground, preparing the area and building the rock grotto.
We would now like to conduct fundraising to put in a sidewalk in the shape of a cross (to make the shrine handicap accessible) and put landscaping and gardens around the shrine. We are conducting a quilt raffle to raise these funds. A handmade Queen size quilt was donated for this purpose by parishioner Carol Mockenhaupt.
Tickets are available from Women’s Club members and will be for sale after all masses of April 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22, 28, 29 & May 5, 2018.
Tickets are $5.00 each or 5 for $20.00. The drawing will be held on Mother’s Day May 13 at the 10:00 a.m. Mass. You do not have to be present to win. Your support for this project would be greatly appreciated. Checks need to be made payable to the order of Our Lady of the Valley Women’s Club.
