Miramar’s newest offerings are an outdoor Chapel for Masses, other liturgies and spiritual gatherings and an adjacent Rosary Garden Path. These two projects, combined with our existing Labyrinth and Stations of the Cross, serve as a catalyst to encourage various age groups to commune with Our Creator within nature. By creating outdoor creative spaces we reaffirm the words and beliefs of St. Teresa of Calcutta:
We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass – grows in silence; see the stars, the moon, and the sun, how they move in silence…We need silence to be able to touch souls.St. Teresa of Calcutta
The Garden of Grace
Breaking ground in the Spring of 2021, The Garden of Grace will be situated surrounding the Blessed Mother statue adjacent to the outdoor Chapel area. Our goal is to create a serene gathering place, a public testament for loved ones of all faiths, living or deceased. This will be a place for finding Grace within ourselves and a worthy memorial that will stand the test of time. This will be sustainable effort to continue year after year. The offering per brick $125 with one name per brick.
Coming in the future, we are planning to develop a meandering trail through an eight-acre tract on the Miramar grounds, providing literature, statuary, guides, programs and reflections for all ages.
