Joseph and his helpers landscaped a large garden area behind the Parish Center at Sacred Heart Parish in Winnetka, Ill. They created a beautiful prayer garden. The project included painting four large metal window well grates, digging out a center area for the two different types of crushed granite that would support an attractive wooden seating bench, buying many high-quality shrubs, bushes, two small trees, and perennials, and planting them in a visually pleasing design. Joseph also ordered and built a wooden seating bench for visitors to sit on.
The garden is a beautiful addition to the parish and it is enjoyed by churchgoers, teachers, religious education students, and tenants from the surrounding apartments, as well as wedding parties (who frequently take pictures in front of the garden).
