Rood is a synonym for Cross, and the woodworker has just begun work on ours. We have collected the corpus (body of Christ) and carved wooden statues of St. John and Mary from antique sources.

The design will be used in the bookplate memorials to be affixed to the inside front covers of our hymnals.
