Here's the new statue that graces the back entry to our Church. Joe and I went over to see it last night. Our Priest and Joe researched this project... looking for just the right one. I think that they found it. It's very heavy...solid concrete. So many people who visit our town have trouble finding St. Mary's. From the back of the Church, which is on the main road, people would miss it. They always had to stop in town to find out where the Church was. Now we have a new sign and this beautiful statue to show people the way to our Church. The Priest who headed this project has just recently been called to another Church. I like to think of this statue as his last gift to us.
We drove over to the Church last night to see it and take pictures. It looks like maybe we will have to make another garden around this statue. I guess that's up to the committee that I am on. There's no way to water this area easily...We'll do it though because a statue this magnificent deserves to be surrounded by a garden.
