These memorials were vandalized and destroyed over the years. Also numerous plaques thanking parishioners for their donations and services to our Church had accumulated, both in the Church and in the Parish Hall.
It was decided to establish a permanent Memorial Wall under the Rose Trees to honor all those parishioners who had given of their time, talents, and money over the many years. A new statue of St. Jude now is the focal center of this memorial. All of the existing plaques were then moved to the Wall and protected by a heavy Plexiglas shield. There is now enough room to add other plaques as is warranted.
