Because of the generosity of you, our parishioners, the statue of Mary holding baby Jesus has arrived and is now in the main Church. It was carved in Ortisei, Italy, where the family-owned Demetz art studio is located. We are sharing two pictures of Mary and Jesus. One which was shown earlier as it was being carved and it's location behind and to the right of the tabernacle in the church. It was fantastic to see the progress of this beautiful statue being carved and exciting now to see Mary and Jesus in our church.
