THE STATUES OF MARY, JOSEPH, AND PIUS X

In time for the Easter Triduum, we were not only able to install the beautiful mosaic of the Holy Spirit above the Tabernacle – sponsored by the Herrmann Family, but we were able to add a statue of Pope Pius X, the “Pope of the Eucharist” to our Blessed Sacrament Shrine. 

 

We installed larger statues of the Blessed Mother and Child Jesus and Saint Joseph in the Holy Family Shrine area.

These new images were carved by the same company in Italy that carved, Joseph, Pius X, along with the mosaic, all come from now closed Churches in the Warren area, namely the former Saint Joseph and Saint Pius X, which merged to create Saint Pope John Paul II, which is not closed and merged into Saints Mary and Joseph in downtown Warren.  Not only do these images complement our Church design, but this allows us to honor some past communities in our own diocese.  There was a cost to acquire the three statues. The cost paid to the restoration company was $2,500 per statue. If anyone is interested in sponsoring these images, please contact 

the parish office.

Additionally, we relocated the smaller statues of the Blessed Mother and Child, Jesus, and Saint Joseph to the Sacred Heart Chapel (bell tower area)

The image of Christ in repose from Good Friday, we believe came from Saints Cyril and Methodius in Youngstown, now merged into Our Lady of Sorrows.  We are not seeking sponsorship since it is used just one day a year, but it is nice to have this image challenge us on that day, as well as honor another former community in our area.
