Our Lady of the Chesapeake is pleased to announce the building of a Memorial Garden on our church grounds.
Paving Stones: The creation of this Garden presents an opportunity for those in the parish community to memorialize a special person such as a parent, child, teacher, or mentor, or a special event such as a birth, baptism, first holy communion, confirmation, anniversary, or wedding through the use of engraved paving stones for the paths and walkways around the gazebo and through the garden.
Each donated paving stone can be engraved with a special message, creating a gift that will last a lifetime and that will be seen by hundreds of people who will walk the paths of this very special garden.
Cost: The requested donation for an engraved paving stone in the Memorial Garden is $50.00 with the proceeds going directly to our Building Fund.
Ordering: If you are interested in ordering a paving stone, a printable version of the Order Form is available which you may use to send to the Parish along with the requested donation. Please be aware that it may take up to several months, depending on when you place your order, for your memorial paving stone to actually be placed in the Memorial Garden, as a complete order is not placed by the parish until a sufficiently large quantity is requested.
Additional Information: If you would like more information about the Memorial Garden, please phone the Pastoral Office (410-255-3677).
