Saint Michael the Archangel

Statue of Saint Michael The Arch Angel above the entry door of Saint Michael Church
Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host -
by the Divine Power of God -
cast into hell, Satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.

St. Henry and Sacred Heart of Jesus (Statues)

Only two of the eight churches on the Scenic Byway The Land of the Cross Tipped Churches have statues above the door. The Sacred Heart of Jesus and St. Henry. This is a picture I took of St. Henry on one of the days that the church was busy. Click here to learn more about St. Henry.

This is the statue of Jesus that oversees and greets you at The Sacred Heart of Jesus church.

Birds seem to be an issue for both locations.
