Saint Faustina Knights of Columbus
and the St. Faustina Parish pay tribute
to the Unborn
The Knights of Columbus Memorial Monument commemorating the Unborn was installed on Wednesday, February 15, on the south side (parking lot side) of our new church building. The first set of bricks were installed the following day.
To date there have been orders for 179 bricks and 30 replicas. If you do not see your brick don’t worry as once an order is placed, it takes 5 to 7 weeks for production. If you ordered a replica brick, please contact Bill Mattingly to receive it. If you have not yet ordered your brick and would like to be part of this historic event, don’t worry, there is still plenty of room for you to remember a loved one with your participation. Order forms are by the gift shop.
The highlight of the Knights’ February meeting was when Father Ramon received a $4,000 check from Grand Knight, Ed Rabelas, for the Joint Engraved Brick Fundraising program by the Parish and Knights of Columbus Council 14217. The funds were raised from the brick sales that will be placed along the walkway to the memorial monument. The donation, will be used for Liturgical needs such as Altar and Sanctuary dressings and requirements, and building needs around the church.
“The Engraved Brick Fundraiser is a huge factor that contributed to the financial success that is helping our council and our parish,” said Rabelas. “We never can thank everyone who has supported this program enough. We also would like to thank our (two time) Past Grand Knight, Bill Mattingly, who has spearheaded this project and unselfishly offered his time, efforts, and resources.”
You can participate in this fundraiser by purchasing a brick commemorating your loved ones and or yourself. The cost of each of the 4×8 bricks is $100.00 and the cost each of the 4×4 tile is $25.00. Your tile would have the same lettering as your brick.
Your brick will add to the landscaping of the walkway at the new church. As mentioned above, the proceeds will be shared by the Council and Parish. For additional information please fill out the form below.
A total of 179 bricks have already been reserved, but there is room for plenty more. Don’t miss out on this rare and historic opportunity.
