1835, built,
1888 consecrated:
Catholic Church memorial stone,
part of the St. Mary’s Catholic Church
story. It’s serious but beautiful Celtic
engravings and cross symbol
lend a nice touch to the
Side door, where a
handicapped
accessible
ramp may
be found.

Delaware,
Ohio.

    • No,I took a photo of the Episcopalian church in my town and the Methodist Church I saw in German Village.
      I live closest to this one, James and have three friends, Mary Jane, Felda and Rosemary who attend here with their husbands. I have attended a wedding and christening here.
      I attend the Presbyterian church, when I don’t have babysitting grandies keeping me busy! My two grown children who have children don’t go regularly to church so I honor their wishes. We say prayers and talk about God and being nice to our neighbors and friends. Hope you have a great weekend, James! πŸ™‚

    • I am not sure, but could be cast since it is a memorial stone cross. Your guess is as good as mine! πŸ™‚ Thanks for showing an interest and curiosity, Juan.

    • Inese, thank you for this thoughtful observation. I was glad to see this Dedication sculpture for a neighboring church. I am happy you found it to be unusual, since I didn’t know how rare it may be. . .

    • Anneli, this is how I reacted! πŸ™‚
      I feel it is chiseled into the stone but a commenter asked if it were cast this way? Not sure how to determine this but I like to think it was carved.

    • This was such a reverent comment, Ian. I feel moved by your serious tone and lovely response. I am a big believer in all faiths and never would stress one over another. My 3 Filipino friends, their husbands and children include me, as a single woman. I had a wonderful group of married friends who almost never invite me. I am not sure why? They don’t invite my ex and don’t really talk to him either. I would never try to flirt or even hug one of the husbands and appreciate my fun times of dancing and singing with this loving trio. πŸ™‚

      • Thank you for that beaut comment Robin, your group of married friends that you had, don’t know what they are missing out on, a Beautiful vibrant personality with loving qualities.
        Their loss, but for your friends on Word Press, our gain.
