It is said, that we plant a tree for the generations of tomorrow to enjoy.
That may be true, but we are most grateful for the beautiful addition that these trees have already brought to our parish grounds.Through the generosity of our parishioners, 41 new trees have been planted as well as 31 flowering shrubs and perennials. Planting took place June 10-13.
The trees are planted throughout the parish grounds and the shrubs and perennials are planted in the devotional garden at Our Lady of Lourdes as well as around The Good Shepherd shrines.
A BIG THANK YOU, to the volunteers who have offered to water these new plantings, twice each day. During this very, dry and hot spell that we are experiencing, it is vital to keep a schedule for watering. Early in the morning and again later in the evening, you will see teams of watering angels caring for these new plantings.
This week, Father Karl, Tammy and her daughter, Tierney, and Sandy tagged each tree with the name of the sponsor family. The Dedication Plaques (which will be 6” x 12” Pennsylvania Blue Slate stones) are ordered and will take approximately 8 weeks for delivery. Once they have arrived, we will plan to have a Dedication Ceremony.
If you see these folks, please thank them for their dedication.
