Remember a Loved One With a Cardinal in Our Grotto Memory Garden

When Cardinals Appear,
An Angel is Near!

We have created a Memory Garden in the trees of the Grotto, adjacent to St. Stanislaus Kostka church, and are creating another one at Transfiguration. We would like to invite our community to add a cardinal to these moving displays.

In memory of a lost loved one, you may purchase a personalized acrylic cardinal that will hang through October 1, 2021. In addition to being a great way to memorialize someone close to you, the cardinals make a touching gift for friends or family members.

There are already more than 400!

Each acrylic cardinal, with a red glitter vinyl back, glistens when the sun shines. The cardinals will be personalized with white vinyl lettering and can be purchased for $20.00.

When purchasing a cardinal, you have two options.

  1. Your cardinal can be hung at either parish.
  2. Your cardinal can be picked up at the rectory.

Checks made out to “St. Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Academy of Queens” can be mailed to or dropped off at the academy office or parish rectory:
