In November of 2018, Father Glen Wilwerding authorized the acquisition of crucifixes for our church campus. A search began. Donors answered the call for contributions as promoted in the bulletin in early 2019. Due to changes in the design, complications, and shipping delays, the crucifixes finally came to the church in May 2020.
The selected crucifixes are hand-carved in Itlay, stained three times, and painted by hand with great love and care by qualified artists. They are supplied by Bergland and Co. and delivered by Cosgroves.
On Sunday, September 13th at the 9 AM Mass in honor of the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, Father James blessed the crucifixes that were purchased, by donations, for the spaces in our church campus.
A special thanks to the Altar and Rosary Society for a major donation. As well as the many donors below.
