A group calling themselves “Save Our Lady” trying to prevent the relocation of a well-known statue in the Region says it's not over... though the marble statue of the Virgin Mary, hand-carved from Italy, and standing along US 41 in St. John for nearly sixty-years was moved Wednesday to the grounds of St. John the Evangelist Parish nearby. Those opposed to the move say the fifteen-foot hand-carved marble statue known as The Marian Wayside Shrine was just off the highway so the statue could be seen by all faiths. St. John the Evangelist Parish is placing a steel statue of the Virgin Mary, Our Lady of the Millennium, about twice as tall, where the Legion of Mary Wayside Shrine had stood.
