New Shrine for St. Benedict

We now have a small but very beautiful shrine for St. Benedict, a gift from Mr. William Kirkpatrick in memory of his wife, Carole.  The statue is from Spain, and the shrine itself was made by our own Shayne Bernier.  It's located beside the St. Joseph Shrine, near the Pieta, in what was the original entrance to the church, before the expansion.  We will be placing a stand of devotional candles in front of it, and there will also be a hanging candle which will burn perpetually.
