Butterfly Garden in Remembrance of those who Died of Drug Overdose
Our Lady of Fatima Shrine is embarking on a new prayer/memorial area. Some people who have lost loved ones to the current opioid crisis approached the shrine to create a Butterfly Garden of Remembrance. There will be the opportunity to honor your loved one who died with a memorial brick that would have the loved one’s name and be permanently placed in the garden. It is not easy knowing that a loved one left this world due to addiction. The garden will give family and friends a place to reflect and pray for any faith tradition. The donation per brick will be $100.
Checks may be made out to Xaverian Missionaries with Butterfly Garden in the memo of the check. You may use credit cards at the donate button on the top right. Please indicate that your donation is for the Butterfly Garden.
Donations are partially tax-deductible. Proceeds cover the cost of making this garden, and any balance is the donation that goes to Fatima Shrine.
