Memorial Bricks

Good news for those of you who ordered memorial bricks as part of our Capital Campaign, Phase II: the order has been sent in and we should be receiving the bricks soon.

Our next step is to find a good brick layer. We have the site, a St. Francis statue, and some beautiful shrubs to decorate the area. Thank you to all who donated. $14, 500 was received.



We can now accept stocks through an account set up with Financial Concepts in Columbus, Mississippi. If interested, contact The Dwelling Place for more information.

Have you considered a bequest to The Dwelling Place? A few of our donors have remembered our retreat center in their wills. If you are considering this, you can do it very easily by including one of the following legal phrases in your will or trust:

I give, devise or bequeath to The Dwelling Place, 2824 Dwelling Place Road, Brooksville, Mississippi 39739 for its general purposes all (or state fraction or percentage) of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate, both real or personal.
