Hello, my name is Luke Sauter. I am a Life Scout of Troop 642 and a parishioner of St. Bernardine. I am currently working with Fr. Michael on my Eagle Project to build a special prayer garden at St. Bernardine for families who have lost a child. The garden will be a place for families to go to pray and be with them. It involves placement of a statue, benches, painting, planter boxes, and plants. I am building this area because I am part of the community and feel for those who have lost their children. To make this project a reality, I am asking for financial support. The estimated cost of my project is about $5,000. If you would like to donate, I would be greatly appreciative. Any amount would help and will assist me in earning my Eagle Rank.

To donate, you can:

1) Venmo: Paul Sauter (Paul-Sauter-1)

2) Use the QR code below

3) Paypal:

4) By check, payable to Luke Sauter and sent to: St. Bernardine Catholic Church, 24410 Calvert St. Woodland Hills, CA 91367
