Plaza Brick

Be a part of Lourdes history by purchasing a commemorative brick. Each brick is just $100 and will be added to the beautiful brick courtyard plaza at St. Clare Hall. The elegantly landscaped plaza gardens and exquisite mural create a serene and peaceful environment where one can reflect or simply take a quiet moment. If you prefer, your brick can be engraved “in memory” or “in honor” of a loved one or to mark a special occasion. All proceeds will go directly towards student scholarships.
