What is it?
The Trojan Trail is a pathway paved with commemorative engraved bricks that celebrate the people and events of our parish. This is your chance to have your family's name or a personal message become a permanent part of the pathway. The length and exact location of the Trojan Trail will be determined by the number of bricks contributed, and it is guaranteed to be a place of prominence and permanence adjacent to our church. It will be visible to all who visit, today and for generations to come. The images featured here are just samples and do not represent the actual Trojan Trail.
The Trojan Trail project was organized by the Saint Juliana Mothers' Club. All profits from the sale of bricks will support the remodeling of the open-air courtyard within the school building, so that the entire parish can once again enjoy that space for events and activities.
