Fr. Lucjan approached Henninger's for a design for this new statue and altar. The image above was agreed upon. The statue was to be 6 feet tall, and the altar was to be 6 feet wide and 3 feet deep. Both were to be hand carved in white Carrara marble in Italy. With the help of generous donors, the statue and altar were commissioned and work began in May of 2014.
The following pictures show the design and carving process of these wonderful pieces:
