Pathway to Peace

building a “Pathway to Peace”

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Bon Secours Retreat and Conference Center, the Sisters of Bon Secours created a “Pathway to Peace” in 2018 – a brick walkway that extends from our building to the Peace Garden. This quiet path carries our guests to one of the most peaceful places on our campus, ending in front of our lovely Peace Garden with the Worldwide Peace Pole, a symbol calling all who encounter it to pray for peace around our world. It has been an honor to work with guests who have already contributed to our path, creating a beautiful, peaceful destination for them to remember loved ones or to mark a place special for them on their own spiritual journey. In 2024, the Sisters of Bon Secours will be celebrating their community’s 200th anniversary and we ask you to consider donating a brick to show your support for their ministry’s legacy into the future. We hope to one day replace every brick on this long path with personalized mementos from our guests and friends. Please click here to donate a brick.

You are encouraged to participate in this fundraising opportunity by creating a customized memorial brick in one of two sizes. 

  • A 4” x 8” brick can be customized with 3 lines of text (20 characters per line including spaces) for $100.
  • A 8” x 8” brick can be customized with 6 lines of text (20 characters per line including spaces) for $200.
  • You can also purchase replica bricks for your home or office. We offer both full size and mini-replica bricks that have the same memorial script as the brick that will be installed on the path.
  • Both the replica and mini-brick can be a recurring reminder of your loved ones, and the lasting memorial placed on the Bon Secours campus. All proceeds are tax deductible, and will be used to defray the daily operating costs of the Retreat and Conference Center.

When you purchase a brick, we will keep you posted with the progression from production, shipping, and installation. Weather permitting, the entire process will take about three to four weeks from the time you place your order. Please click here to see a list of answers to questions you may have.

Of course, you are welcome to visit our grounds at any time to enjoy the progress of our project or simply spend some time taking in the surrounding beauty of our campus.
