"New" Baptismal Font Arrives Safely

The baptismal font for the renovated church arrived safely today by truck from Clinton, Iowa via King Richard's Liturgical Design of Alpharetta, Georgia.

It was crated several years ago when St. Mary's in Clinton was closed and demolished until we called it out of liturgical limbo to serve as our font. We will clean and polish it and investigate the possibility of drilling a drainage hole in its basin for easy disposal of its water to the sacrarium.

I wonder how many babies were baptized in this font? (After some research, we might be able to answer that question!)
