Memorial Courtyard Brick Campaign


Buy A Brick / Donate - Click Here!

Dear Faithful Friend of the Saint Charles Center,

Pretty with a purpose. That is the phrase that I have often employed to describe the new Memorial Courtyard Project currently underway here at the Saint Charles Center. The project achieves the goal of ongoing funding to support the maintenance needs of our slightly aging facility, while adding a touch of grace and beauty to the courtyard space of the complex.

Located in the very heart of the Tabor Retreat House, this courtyard garden of quiet and peaceful meditation will help us continue the efforts of our mission statement which is to "offer an atmosphere of serenity and peace, where one can deepen one's relationship with God and achieve spiritual renewal and growth while rediscovering life's meaning in quiet reflection." We are most grateful to the generous family of A. J. M. "Bubba" and Lena Mae Oustalet for their overwhelming support of this undertaking. The courtyard will be named in honor of the patriarch and matriarch of this outstanding household of faith. The fountain feature of the project will be dedicated to honor the memory of Peggy Chapman Oustalet, the late wife of Rick Oustalet.

You can now join in this prayerful practice of honoring the memory of a loved one by purchasing a brick in this courtyard space. Please consider this unique opportunity to provide adequate funding for the maintenance needs of the Center while enriching the aesthetic appeal of our courtyard. Our many guests will benefit from your thoughtfulness.


Rev. Whitney Miller, Ph.D., LPC
