Inspired by the 8th century Ruthwell Cross in Scotland, local artist, Robert Thornley was commissioned by Christ Anglican Church to sculpt the 18 foot cross as a symbol of peace and hope for all who see it. Mr. Thornley will be at the parish between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. to talk about his work of art.

Also, Father Steven Dart will be available to discuss the history of this Anglican Cross and the significance of the carvings portraying the important events in the life of Jesus Christ and representing eternal truths of the Christian faith.

Light refreshments will be provided. On the following day, Sunday, Nov. 22, Bishop Morrison will dedicate the Cave Creek Cross at the 10:30 a.m. service.

Christ Anglican Church is located at 35500 N. Cave Creek Road, one-half mile north of Carefree Highway.
