Children's Memorial Garden Ministry

Twice each  year, those who have experienced the death of a child gather in the Children’s Memorial Garden on the North side of the church to remember the joy, talent and mischief their child brought into this world.  Each family is offered an opportunity to present a crystal glass tear, provided by the Children’s Memorial Garden, to be placed on the corona of the memorial as a loving tribute.

The garden at St. Joseph Church was the beginning of linking over fifteen hundred isolated gardens dedicated to children scattered across the United States.

We invite everyone to visit this place of peace and seek the healing presence of God.
