Instruments of Hope

The St. Francis Sculpture Garden for Prayer and Meditation at Marywood




Instruments of Hope is a Michigan-based not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting peace through various artistic endeavors. 

Our vision is to build the St. Francis Sculpture Garden for Prayer and Meditation. 
Visitors will be able to walk and sit along meandering pathways through wooded areas and gardens.  Inspired by events in the life of St Francis of Assisi, the bronze statues depict him in postures of prayer, meditation, preaching and interacting with nature.  They will be placed in areas conducive to quiet reflection.
