An Enduring Reflection of Love
You can now honor a loved one, celebrate a special day, remember your departed loved one(s) or simply inscribe a message on a brick at Holy Name Monastery. The bricks will lead to and surround the statue of the Blessed Mother at the front of the property. Your gifts help toward the maintenance and beauty of the monastery grounds and gardens which provide quiet contemplation for all our visitors.
The locations is along the walk and around the Blessed Mary statue. Space is limited so reserve your brick(s) today in honor, remembrance or celebration of those you love in this place of peace. Each brick is 8″ X 4″ with up to 3 lines of text; maximum of 13 characters per line.

The Benedictine Sisters of Florida work with Catholic Charities to welcome refugees to their new country, the United States of America.
Pictured left to right are S. Mary David and Affiliate Barbara Molloy putting together Hope Kits as part of helping refugees as they work toward becoming self-sufficient and contributing members of our society. The HOPE Kits are: Kitchen Kit; Bathroom Kit; Personal Grooming Kit, Cleaning Kit…even a Baby Kit (0-3 years) and a Preschool Age Kit (3-5 years.)
These hopeful refugees are in the US legally, having fled their home countries because of persecution or fear of persecution due to race, ethnicity, religion or political belief.
If you’d like to participate in this venture to feed the hunger for welcome and belonging, contact the Office of Life Ministry Diocese of St. Petersburg ([email protected]) for more info.
