PGK Joe and his lovely wife Susan Suminski along with Kathy and her lovely husband Paul Wierbicki had a wonderful idea. Let’s build Lenten Crosses for people to display in their front yards for Lent. Brilliant. Joe and Karrie Illner got busy and developed an assembly-line Henry Ford would be proud of. Here’s a picture of proud papa Karrie and his creation – the cross, not the assembly line. It’s like seeing Henry Ford standing by a Model A – right?
These beautiful crosses are for sale. They’re made of the best pine and lovingly stained in English Chestnut. Each stands 48′ tall with a 24″ cross arm. A rebar stake is included. That stake slips over a 1/2 inch PCV pipe mounted on the back of the cross. Included with each cross are two drapes, one white and one purple.
We are asking for a minimum donation of $25 per cross. Crosses will be made available at St Clement for pickup.
