We are writing to extend an invitation to you to include the names of your loved ones in our Remembrance Garden. By selling individual memorial bricks to be laid along the existing wall of the garden by the pathway, we are hoping to raise money for the church restoration fund. This money will be used towards fixing the church tower and, hopefully, creating a lasting source of funds for future projects at our church.
As we have written before, our church is an historic treasure that remains open to all as a place to celebrate marriages, births and special occasions, to mourn the passing of loved ones and to gather as a community. This is true whether you are a member of St Mark's church or not. It is hard to imagine our lovely historic city without St Mark's on West St. Any contribution you can make is a gift for generations to come.
Memorial bricks can be purchased for $125 each for the 4” by 8” bricks. Please use the enclosed order form to send us the name of the person you wish to memorialize along with the years of his or her birth and death if you would like to include these. We have limited capacity of space for only 500 such bricks. It is expected that these will go fast and our first round of orders for bricks will be placed in August.
If you need more information, please do not hesitate to contact us. We thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity. All donations including the price of the bricks are tax deductible.
