Memorial Bricks

Did you attend church or school at Old St. Ferdinand  in Florissant?

Are you proud of this Florissant landmark which played an important part in the settling of North County?

Would you like the opportunity to say thanks to St. Ferdinand?

The Friends of Old St. Ferdinand are giving you an opportunity to express your thanks. They are planning a Memorial Brick Garden on the Shrine property. These bricks will be placed on the grassy area near the Blessed Mother Statue across from the school and church. You may place a brick with your name, a name in memory of someone, the name of a business or any other message. This would make a wonderful gift for someone who values the Shrine.


Artifacts are also important to us! Don’t throw them away. Donate them to Old St. Ferdinand.

Aquisition Policy

Thank you for helping us preserve history! Your gift is appreciated.

St. Ferdinand Shrine soon will be celebrating their 200th birthday we need your help!

The first building erected was the convent in 1819 then the Church in 1821, next was the Rectory in 1940 and the two story schoolhouse was completed in 1888. The buildings are beginning to show their age and need many improvements.

Our biggest concerns are repair and painting of the windows, tuck pointing, plumbing upgrades, ceiling of the Church and many smaller projects. To have a better understanding of the Shrine we ask you read all the information presented on the web site and you will understand the significance of St. Ferdinand Shrine in the building of our religious faith and of the history of our country.

We hope you will consider donating to our cause. We have launched our GoFundMe campaign linked here:
