My name is Luke Rost and I am a Life Scout in Troop 318 (Orland Park, IL). I am currently working on my project for the rank of Eagle Scout, which is the highest honor in Scouting.

What is the Eagle project?  My planned project is a beautiful outdoor space at my parish, St. Julie Billiart Catholic Church in Tinley Park, IL, which will honor current military servicemembers and memorialize military veterans and fallen servicemembers. 

I hope to include:

  • A 30' Brick wheelchair accessible pathway
  • A brick patio area
  • A 30' flagpole
  • Surrounding landscaping
  • Benches

Why did I choose this project?  Three of my siblings currently serve in the U.S. military and I wanted to select a project that would honor all military servicemembers, past and present, and make a lasting impact in my community.  I believe that this space will give parishioners an area of reflection and meditation and a place to pray for our country and for our servicemembers and veterans. It’s an ambitious project in terms of scope and cost, which is approximately $10,500, but I believe that I can reach this goal with your help.

How will the project be funded?  My main project fundraiser is selling engraved bricks that you can order through this site (please see below regarding cost and where to send payment.)  The engraved bricks will be used to complete the pathway and patio portions of the project.

When will the project be installed?  My goal is to begin installation in Spring 2022.

Who can buy an engraved brick?  Anyone! You don’t have to be a member of St. Julie Billiart parish.  Anyone interested in supporting this project can purchase an engraved brick.

What message should I include on my engraved brick? Each brick is laser engraved with your custom message.  Some supporters might choose to honor a servicemember or veteran that they know, including veterans that are no longer with us, or a fallen servicemember. Other supporters might choose to include their family name or business name. We also offer the option of including an American flag or a military logo.

Do you offer engraved replica tiles?  Yes!  We offer a 4” x 4” engraved replica tile as an add-on for $15.  This means that if you order an engraved brick, you can also order a smaller tile with the same printing and logo (if applicable) for your home or to give to your honoree.
