General Information


Katka Mtn Peace Garden is 6 acres of young conifer forest and rockery flower garden growing in peaceful meadow on the sunny slopes of Katka Mtn with views of the Purcell and Selkirk Mtn Ranges.

The peace gardens are lovely all year and most days visitors are welcome. A year of seasonal pictures can be enjoyed on line at the photo gallery.

Couples are invited to exchange their marriage vows in the peace gardens. I have ministerial authority through the Universal Life Church and welcome couples who want to seal their commitment to each other before God and their love ones with or without a state marriage liscence.

The service can be in the flower garden, among meadow wildflowers, or in a forest glade. Couples are welcome to bring light refreshment for a celebratory picnic after the service.

The peace gardens are in North Idaho, 7 miles east of Bonners Ferry which is 30 miles North of Sandpoint and 75 miles north of Courd d”Alene. It is 30 miles south of the Canadian Border.
