I took a ton of pictures of the exterior of the church property. I love this statue of a Franciscan friar that greets every parishioner who drive up the driveway.
This is a picture looking out from the court yard, I love gates and doors.
This little cottage on the property was just sooo sweet. I had to snap a quick picture.
There is a grotto on the grounds as well. It is very peaceful with the soft sound of a little fountain flowing. Both Mary and Saint Bernadette have blue rosaries in their grasp, just like mine.
Here are some closeups of the statues, they are gorgeous.
Finally a small sundial. There were so many benches and small tranquil areas to pray. I am so glad I made the drive to Ellicott City on Saturday.
