Chapter puts up new cross on Good Friday

On Good Friday, Mr Paul O'Leary OP brought out a team of volunteers to erect the steel cross which had been built for us.  The cross stands 12' above ground and is constructed from square box steel. It should stand much longer than our previous wooden crosses, which seemed to last about 2-3 years each.  This one was anchored with about a half ton of cement.

The day was gorgeous, the very earth bursting forth with new life in anticipation of our Lord's resurrection!

The cross against the skyline... a view we should see for many years to come!

Many thanks to Stephanie DeNinno for arranging for the cross to be built, and to Paul O'Leary who arranged for its delivery and installation!

Next item: The Bl. Margaret of Castello life-size statue is taking shape under the careful hands of sculptor Michael Dente.  Michael has a long history of sculpting for the Western Dominican Province; notably the statue of St Dominic which is at the Dominican Cemetery in Benicia, California.  It is fitting that Little Margaret will be here in our little Dominican cemetery in Idaho!
