St. Paul Catholic High School Cross

This Cross was made as a gift for the St. Paul Catholic High School in Bristol, Connecticut. It uses the traditional symbols associated with St. Paul (the sword and the open Bible). I added two extra symbols that speak to the ‘spirit of community’ – the value of relationships formed at school symbolized by the circle of hands in the upper left corner and the pinwheel that symbolizes the power of a community moved by the Holy Spirit. I used eight different woods on this cross.
