The statue, Whatsoever you do, will be at Zion until June 3rd.

 

For over 20 years, Timothy P. Schmalz has been sculpting large scale monuments in bronze. His pieces are installed worldwide. The bronze original of this statue, entitled “Whatsoever You Do”, sits outside Santo Spririto Hospital, the oldest hospital in Rome, near the Vatican. Santo Spirito is the oldest Hospital in the world that is still in service and it was one of the first in recorded History to treat the sick without pay.

 

 Schmalz describes his sculptures as visual translations of the Gospels.  This sculpture is a representation of charity. We should see Christ in the poor and the hungry.  We should see our acts of kindness to them as kindness to Him.  Inspired by the Gospel of Matthew 25:40.

 

This piece was brought to Connecticut by the efforts of Don Burr and travels between churches and camps throughout the year. This is the third time the statue has been in North Branford.

Our next knitting night will be on Tuesday, May 23rd from 6:30-8:00 in the Parish Hall. 

 

Projects include prayer shawls, hats, and scarves for pastoral and outreach ministries.

 

Even if you do not currently knit but are interested in learning, please join us. Yarn, needles and instructions are available. ALL are welcome!
