A Constructive Summer - the Saint Paul Statue: the Fourth Part

We carry on with our series within a series on the construction of the pillar that will hold the outdoor statue of Saint Paul that will sit in the southwest corner of our courtyard facing east - toward both the entrance of the seminary and the rising sun.

The bricks that will cover the outside of the pillar (pictured at right) have arrived; they are the same as the gray bricks that line the pillar for the Metropolitan Cross in front of the seminary.

The crews have begun pouring concrete and the pillar is taking shape. We're on the edge of our seats waiting to see just how the final and finished project will appear. I have been told that a picture is worth a thousand words, so for this post I will let the pictures speak for themselves.

And then FINALLY the crews added the inner part of the pillar!

Ben will be taking over to show you the next stages of the construction. I am away from the Saint Paul Seminary so Ben will be showing you his pictures of the ongoing development of the installation of the statue of Saint Paul.

Take care, -Jeremy
