Our Hope Is That This Special Garden Will Also Serve As a Memorial to Our Families Children


Our hope is that this special garden will serve as a memorial to our families’ children who were lost early in their life, some prior to their birth. Families and friends are invited to have a small plaque mounted on one of the upright posts of the arbor that covers the statue of Jesus the Good Shepherd.
The plaques are 7” x 2”x ¼”, made out of durable brass with up to 3 lines of gold lettering (ALL CAPS) on a dark background. Conceptual sample below.
If you are interested in a commemorative plaque please complete the attached Plaque Request. A donation of $150 to cover costs is appreciated. All donations are tax deductible and will be listed on your annual statement if you include your parishioner envelope number.
Due to the lead time needed to produce the plaques, please submit your request as soon as possible.
Request /Payment Options:
ü  Make checks payable to St. Rita Catholic Church, Note “Memorial Garden Plaque”, and Envelope Number, if registered parishioner in the memo area.
ü  Mail or drop off at the Parish Office MON-FRI 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 12521 Inwood Rd., Dallas TX 75244. Please do not mail cash.
