At long last, the brick paver memorial in front of the Church at Immaculate Conception is installed.  The bricks are purchased from a company in Florida called Bricks R Us.  They have also provided engraved pavers to the Central county schools.  The installation of the bricks was done by CMS Company (Concrete, Masonry, Stone) from Bonne Terre with Mr. Ron Nash, the owner.  The contracts for the bricks and installation were signed on Aug. 4, 2017.  The pavers were delivered on September 7, 2017.  The installation of the bricks and railing for the 251 square foot area were finished on March 22, 2018, which is 196 days to install or 0.78 days per square foot.

I want to thank all who contributed to the memorial by purchasing an engraved brick sight unseen and trusted us to make the project happen.  As the project pioneers they received a very discounted price.  Much of the project installation was made possible by a bequest of the late Neil and Roberta Cooper.  Currently there are only twelve 12"X12" pavers left to engrave and only seventeen 8"X8" pavers left to engrave.  There are numerous 4"X8" pavers available.

It takes a minimum of 10 bricks of any combination of sizes to complete a brick order.  We plan to place new brick orders on May 1 and September 1, 2018 and then again on March 1, 2019 depending on the brick orders we receive.

The current order form [can be printed from this page, torn from a current bulletin or  picked up at the Rectory office at your convenience.]  Any older order forms are now obsolete.

I think it turned out to be a right and just tribute to the priests and parishioners who have gone before us marked with the sign of faith.
