Marian Grotto - Brick Paver Campaign

Andrew Hostetler, a very ambitious 16-year-old young man, presented the project to Fr. Danda and the finance council in September 2023. Andrew is a Life Scout working on his Eagle Scout project and wanted to provide a lasting, prayerful space on the grounds of St. Malachy.

Our Mary statue, which resided near the church's north entrance until last fall, was donated by the Slovenian Holy Trinity Catholic Community when their parish was closed. Many members of this community joined St. Malachy. We look forward to constructing a grotto to keep her safe from the weather and provide a spiritual place to seek guidance from our Blessed Mother.

The initial cost estimate for completion of the Marian Grotto is $35,000-$40,000. This includes the Grotto itself, brick pavers, landscaping, seating, and lighting. To help with the cost, parishioners can choose to donate towards the campaign or purchase a brick paver to reside in the grotto.
