They actually did it!

The replacement cross of Waterbury’s own Holy Land was ceremoniously dedicated today, just two months after the old one was officially taken down shortly following its public condemnation as a safety hazard.

Watch the Republican-American’s video, “Complete Deconstruction of Holy Land Cross” to see workers dismantling and lowering the monument. (It’s really quite dramatic).

I really will miss that funky old crucifix, I’ll make no bones about it.

The outer layer of the new cross is coated in stainless steel, very much unlike the light-up-from-the-inside florescent one. It will shine in both natural sunlight and the flood lights that are to illuminate the area at night.

Channel 8 had this story.

See Strange Religion, my last blog about this topic, for more information on and links to things about Holy Land (plus some of my own opinions about the place).

I can’t wait to revisit!
