SAY YES TO OUR BLESSED MOTHER!
Our Lady of Hope Parish Grotto and Meditation area is getting closer to a reality. The transformation our retention pond into a meditation place dedicated to our Blessed Mother is progressing, thanks to your prayers, rosaries and continued donations.
Our Blessed Mother’s Disciples continue to be hard at work. Our actual Grotto is completed, the Blessed Mother will be in place in the spring, along with the Statues of St. Agnes & St. Jude. The major underground electrical work is completed and our security system should be in place by Christmas, along with the preparation for our path ways…Keep Watching
All donations are welcomed, needed and will be recognized. Cement path ways, pads for stations and benches, lights, signs, recognition displays, receptacles, are some of the areas still needed.
Please continue to pray and say YES to our Blessed Mother
Take moment and view the pictures below, and see some of our progress.
Join us on this journey and help Our Lady of Hope Parish turn this…
Our Lady of Hope property is about 21.5 acres and is bordered by Little Gloucester Road, Cole Road and Peters Lane. Located by the exit on Little Gloucester Road and the rear parking lot is a retention basin for all the water from our parking lot.
Over the last twelve years or so, we have tried to keep this area manicured, without much success. Through the leadership of our Pastor Fr. Joseph Szolack we will create an outdoor meditation area, which will include stations of the cross, lighting, benches and a grotto for Our Blessed Mother.
SAY YES TO THE BLESSED MOTHER!
