Installation of Italian Statue at Our Lady of Mercy Cemetery

Today our new bronze statue was installed on its permanent pedestal in the open field next to the Ascension of Christ by the Lake Mausoleum.

This statue, titled “Come, follow me”, was hand crafted in the mountains of Italy, and commissioned through the Conrad Pickel Studio in Vero Beach, based on the artist renderings provided by the studio. The artist renderings were brought to life from the inspirational thoughts of Reverend Jose Luis Menendez, Pastor of Corpus Christi parish and an advisor to our cemetery.

This statue will be the feature centerpiece of our future Ascension Centre Mausoleum. The image of Christ ascending into heaven looks kindly on those who stand at His feet and silently portrays His message of eternal life: “Come, take my hand. Follow me and I will lead you to the Father in heaven.”

All are welcome to visit! A date for the official blessing of the statue will be announced soon.
