From base to golden crowns, the new granite statue of Mary and Baby Jesus stands 7-feet tall and weighs a ton. A statue of the risen Jesus just across the pathway has the same dimensions.

Two solid granite benches were also put in on the cool, cloudy afternoon by Brandon Mitchell and TJ Harris with Memorial Monuments.
