Thank you to all those who ordered bricks for the second phase of St. Edward’s Commemorative Walkway. Due to the freezing temperartures and inclement weather throughout the late fall into early spring, installation of the new bricks has been delayed. As soon as the new bricks are added, we will let you know.
Cloudy skies didn't diminish the enthusiasm of all those who participated in the Dedication and Blessing of St. Edward's Commemorative Walkway on May 18th. For a look at the day's festivities,click here.
