Our Lady of Knock Garden

The Our Lady of Knock Garden will provide a new contemplative space for prayerful reflection and community events for The Miraculous Medal Shrine in Philadelphia.  A rosary walk encircles the garden and ties existing statuary together.  The central node was designed to provide a seating area for small groups to meet.  Granite stone beads and Celtic paving motifs complete the rosary walk while evoking the Irish history of Our Lady of Knock.  The main feature, a new grotto shrine, holds a statue of Our Lady of Knock with a mosaic backdrop.  Colorful perennials and shrubs were selected for interest in all four seasons.
