The Rosary Candlelight Procession of February 11, 2021 took my breath away. There were so many people and with candlelight filling both sides of the school track as we moved along it carried me away to the Sanctuary itself. When we finally arrived at the Grotto, I was reminded that already last year we had recognized the need to expand the plaza for the sake of those in wheelchairs. It is time to make that happen.

Remember that we did a survey at that time about the use of memorial bricks for the plaza. The consensus is that we will keep what is now the plaza free of memorialization but that we will accept memorializations for the bricks in what will be the newly expanded part of the plaza.

The current plan is to use regular 4" x 8" bricks and allow for a three-line memorialization of 18 characters per line.

===================================================================

Ver la Procesión del Rosario y sus velitas del 11 de febrero de 2021 me dejo sin resuello. Tantas personas alumbrando ambas partes del terreno de nuestro colegio mientras nos movíamos lentamente, me transportó al Santuario en sí. Cuando finalmente llegamos a la Gruta, me recordé que ya desde el año pasado sabíamos que tendríamos que extender la plazoleta por el número de sillas de ruedas presentes.

Nos ha llegado el moment de crecer. Hicimos una encuesta en aquel momento sobre el utilizar unos ladrillos conmemorativos para extender la plazoleta.

El proyecto será el utilizar ladrillos de 4 x 8 donde nos permita usar 3 líneas a 18 letras por línea.
