GOOD SHEPHERD CHAPEL AT BROOKSIDE
Grace Church's Chapel will be having Wednesday evening services Wed. July 4th through Wed. Oct. 31st. Located on Day Rd. near Slayton Settlement Rd., our own Father Joe Kozlowski will be celebrant on July 11th, Aug. 1st and Sept. 12th. All services begin at 7 pm.
We will soon have a Commemorative Walk to the Bell Tower. The walk will be made of engraved bricks...it's the perfect opportunity to give thanks for your blessings. It might be someone you loved who has passed away or the birth of a grandchild or the blessing of your family. It can be whatever blessings you are thankful for.
The walk will be build later this year, but first we need to get the bricks engraved. If you would like to have a brick, please fill out an order form and return it to Christ Church with the payment. (Contact Christ Church 716-433-9229 for a form) Please complete a separate form for each brick you would like. Engraved bricks are available for $50 each. There will also be two benches available for $500 each. If you have questions or would like to reserve a bench, please contact Sue Bauer (716-7278776 or email@example.com.
