Sr. Clarette Healing Garden

Pave the Way to Health

Help Pave the Way to Health! SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital Foundation in Centralia is creating a new healing garden on the hospital grounds – a designated greenspace for rest, reflection, and peace – for our patients, their families, our caregivers, and our community.

The healing garden is being named in honor of Sr. Clarette Stryzewski, whose faithful service and leadership to SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital, Felician Services, and our local community spanned multiple decades.

Engraved Pavers

We hope you will help us create this beautiful tribute to honor Sr. Clarette's faithful dedication and servant leadership. You may also choose to honor or memorialize someone special to you with an engraved paver for gifts of $250 (7.5”x15” paver), $500 (15"x15" paver) or $750 (15"x22" paver).

Your gift will:

  • Encourage healing. 
  • Soothe patients coping with the stresses of hospitalization. 
  • Offer a reminder of Hope and Life to those facing terminal illness. 
  • Rejuvenate caregivers and families dealing with mental and emotional fatigue.

The new Sr. Clarette Healing Garden will include the Madonna statue & will be located on the south side of Hospital. All proceeds from this project stay within SSM Health St. Mary's Hospital in Centralia.
