A dedication ceremony is being held April 29th at 10 am for the Rockland Community Prayer Garden located at 2921 Rockland Road in Warren County.

The large prayer garden has taken over two years to construct and features a life-sized, hand-carved marble statue of Christ above a large reflecting pool surrounded by over 6000 bricks forming a cross.

This is all encompassed by a garden of over 1500 plants with many benches and walkways to find the perfect place to relax and find peace.

Lieutenant Governor Winsome Earle-Sears will speak at the dedication and all are invited to attend.
