Engraved Bricks

The Chapel Engraved Brick Program

Thank you for your interest in ordering a personalized brick for the Precious Moments Chapel Memorial Plaza. Your donation for this brick enables the Precious Moments Foundation to insure continuance of free Chapel tours and provide the care and maintenance of the Chapel and the grounds. Your gifted brick will serve as a lasting tribute to our Precious Moments family and friends and serve as a gentle reminder of the founder and artist, Samuel J. Butcher’s mission to glorify God with his artistic gifts.

The Chapel Engraved Brick Program is the perfect way to leave a blessing of remembrance and celebration for you, your family and friends. These bricks also make a great gift for that “hard to buy for person” that has everything. We will send a Certificate of Ownership for each brick to you or the person you designate.

Your gifted brick will be installed directly in front of the Chapel. You will have two options of purchase. Option number one is priced at $200.00 per brick and will be installed in the center square. Option number two is priced at $125.00 per brick and will be installed outside the center square. If multiple bricks are ordered, they will be placed together if requested.

How to make your brick purchase: You must complete the order form and mail with your payment to:
