The Peace Garden has been a part of The Grotto’s upper level since 1989 because of a generous gift from Henry J. Casey in memory of his sister Marguerite. The Peace Garden covers one and half acres. Incorporated into the landscaping are the Mysteries of the Rosary. They are depicted in individual bronze plaques grouped into the Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious and Luminous mysteries. The Peace Garden also features a large pond and flowing stream.
When entering the Peace Garden and walking through its winding paths during any season you become aware of darkness and light. The concept was incorporated with the purpose to remind us that we are walking into the mystery of our redemption.
