Long Description:
In front of the church are two black granite stones, both with highly polished faces and both donated to the church by the Knights of Columbus. The other bears the Ten Commandments while this stone is a memorial to all the Helpless Victims of Abortion and contains the following quote from Luke 23. Both are very finely etched, suggesting that they are either laser etched or sand blasted.

The quotation, as written on the stone, is:
Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.
