Looking lovely! Look carefully, though. There's something new in this photo...
Well, yes, it's freshly painted, but there's a little something way up there that's new...
Yes, there's a cross again above the entrance to the church!
Next time you're at church see how many crosses there are on St. Peter's. You see two in this photo....
The 100 year old cross that crumbled!
Three years almost to the day--July 29, 2014--this crumbling cross was taken down for fear that pieces could fall off and hurt someone. It stood above St. Peter's from 1914 to 2014--100 years! Now a new cross sits atop that pinnacle. The new cross was made to exact specifications as the old cross by a local fabricator. It, too, is made of solid concrete but with fiberglass rebar, so it won't expand and crack like the old one. For those who like trivia, the cross weighs 168 pounds, is 35 inches high, and has an arm width of 28 inches (Sounds like an announcement for the birth of a very big baby!).
