St. Patrick back home at last!

It's been nearly a year since St. Patrick travelled to St. Louis for a complete make-over. The results are good and he is now back at home in his niche just to the right of the Epistle side of the main altar. It feels good to have him back home. This statue is carved of solid wood and weighs somewhere in the neighborhood of 250 pounds. It took three strong men and a special winch to get the statue up on its perch about seven feet above the floor level.
