across the diocese. Immediately after Mass everyone processed outside to the location of the new statue where the formal dedication ceremony took place. A reception was held at St. Anthony Tri-Parish Catholic School following the dedication.
The statue faces CY Avenue and greets people as they pass by the church property. The bronze statue is 12 feet tall on a 5-foot base. It sits atop a cement base which ultimately creates a structure that is a total of 22 feet tall. It weighs about 4000 lbs. The LED lit Sacred Heart is 8 inches across and four 20 inch doves encircle the base.
The statue is a generous gift from Marialyce Tobin in memory of her parents, Frank and Alice Barrett. Many contractors and parishioners donated time, materials, and labor to the construction site to make the installation of the statue possible.
The sculptor of the statue is Chris Navarro from Casper, Wyoming.
