New Statues

The statues that we ordered for St. Catherine’s are now completed and are in the process of being shipped from where they were made in Northern Italy to us. The statues that are presently in the church will make their way back to the gathering space. The new statues that will be on either side of the tabernacle are the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Since St. Joseph is already present in the Holy Family Shrine, I thought that the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart would be nice to have. The devotion to the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart are a reminder of the very personal love that Our Lord has for each of us, and by extension, His Mother and her love for us. This is something that so many in our own time need to rediscover – that the Lord is not someone distant and unconcerned for us but that Our Lord loves us so much that He died for us, as we hear on Good Friday, that His Heart was pierced for us and our sins.
