The Lampedusa Cross

The Lampedusa Cross is on display at the Cathedral.

Constructed from the wreckage of a boat that sank off the small Italian island Lampedusa, in which over 300 refugees sadly died. Please join us in prayer and stand in solidarity with all refugees and migrants around the world during this Year of Mercy.
