BRICK COMMEMMORATIVE
The Administration Commission and Christ the King staff wishes to thank all the parishioners and organization
who ordered a commemorative brick that will surround the Ten Commandment monument. A total of 149 bricks
were ordered. We also want to thank John Brust, of Brust Funeral Home, who donated a granite bench facing
the Ten Commandment side. Installation will begin in early spring, weather permitting. It is our intention that
the bricks will be in place in time for Easter. All the proceeds from the sale of brick commemorative will go into
the enhancement and repair of our campus. Your generosity made it possible to achieve our goal to provide our
parishioners a place for reflection and prayer.
