In Memory of Unborn Children

In Memory of Unborn Children

This installation on the grounds of Holy Spirit Catholic Church, current as of 11/3/2022, honors all unborn children. Although it is in the tradition of roadside memorials and visually resembles one, it is more in keeping with the tradition of placing a descanso or crucita–an informal memorial cross–at the site of an unexpected death to allow passersby to pray for the unshriven soul in Purgatory.

Location: Eastgate

Medium type: Mixed Media; Wood
