HONORING OUR LADY’S MESSAGE OF PEACE, WE WORK AND PRAY FOR THE UNITY OF ALL PEOPLE, AND FOR TRUE AND LASTING PEACE ON EARTH.
Prayer Garden Objectives
There were three principal objectives that drove the creation of Our Lady of Guadalupe Prayer Garden:•Provide a place for people to pray and meditate when the church building is unavailable. A place where everyone feels welcome and safe. The theme of the Prayer Garden is Peace and Hope.•Bring people together. Facilitate a sense of community, not only within our own diverse parish community, but also within the larger Windsor community. We all are a community of God’s children.•Finance the process primarily through a sponsorship program in which many members of the parish will be able to participate. There was to be no single large donor. A small number of key elements of the design, such as olive trees, benches, and gateway markers would be financed through sponsorship by an individual or a ministry. The bronze statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe would be financed through a brick sponsorship program that would pool relatively small donations of a large group, thereby offering affordable sponsorship opportunities to a large number of individuals.
