St. John, Mary and Jesus statues off to the Woodworker

Our wooden statues were taken to the woodworker's shop this morning. The crafstmen will do some light restoration work on them and then affix them to the focal point of their new scene, the Crucifixion, the Holy Rood or the Holy Cross. The cross will be newly crafted. Jesus will be affixed to the cross and Mary and St. John look up at him from below. The entire scene will be suspended above the main altar. These three figures have never been displayed before, in fact they are from different continents, but we a hopeful that they will be a beautifully coordinated scene and an occasion of grace here at Holy Cross for many years to com.

Here is the architect's sketch of the design. You may already recognize it as being featured on the hymnal bookplates.
