Holy Family Cathedral in Saskatoon placed the crucifix I carved for them some years ago in front of the Cathedral for Holy Week. They secured a rough log, fashioned a cross and hung the crucifix to it. Then they dug a hole and lifted the cross and crucifix into place. Knights of Columbus offered security for the site, since the Cathedral, like so many other church buildings, is closed during the Covid-19 crisis.

People from across the city come by in their cars to view the cross and offer up their prayers. In the season of Covid-19, this is a wonderful opportunity for those who wish to “pay their respects” to their crucified Lord, Jesus.

The crucifix is fashioned from laminated Poplar wood, thus the color variation in the wood.

-- "Faith is a better tool than than fear to process a crisis. Fear views a crisis as a threat. Faith views a crisis as a means for God to work a higher purpose. “
