(Chelsea Update would like to thank Karen Bannon for the information for this story.)

Ben Brannon, who recently graduated from Chelsea High School, also attained the rank of Eagle Scout this spring.

The member of Boy Scout Troop 476 planned, secured funding and built a solid walking path for the Franciscan Sisters of St. Mary Catholic Church. This will allow them to walk safely from their house to the church.

The project included removing a cracked, deteriorated sidewalk and walkway and replacing it with a combination of concrete and paver blocks. Paver blocks were engraved with Christian-inspired words like love, joy and faith. Hence, the walkway was named “Inspiration Path.” 

In March, Chelsea Mayor Jason Lindauer presented Ben with a Proclamation during a City Council Meeting.

In April, an official Eagle Scout ceremony took place at the church and Father William Turner blessed the path.

    We at St. Mary are very proud of Ben and the hard work that he put into this project for our Sisters. Also thank you to our parishioners who “bought” individual inspirational brinks.
