It was a christ-filled celebration at a Gravesend church, where they unveiled their restored crucifix last Sunday, Sept. 3rd.

Parishioners at Sts. Simon and Jude Church gathered for the rededication and blessing of Christ on the cross.

It was restored by members of the lay organization, The Legion of Mary, who saw the statue needed to be spruced up and decided to put in the time and money to do it.

There were 40 parishioners that took part, hand painting the statue until it looked like new.

The group says they were happy to do it because the crucifix shows us the love of our lord.
