As Dennis describes it, "We decided that a Celtic cross, a cross with a ring circumscribing the intersection point of the cross members, would be appropriate.
The cross bars inside the circle would be eliminated and replaced with the hand of man reaching up from the lower vertical beam and the hand of God reaching down from the upper vertical beam."
The cross and circle were formed out of metal stock and the hands were made from welding rod. The supporting staff was originally made of a piece of driftwood, but it eventually decayed and was replaced by an oak shaft.
The tapers have a blend of the Greek letters “Chi” and “Rho” which was an abbreviation for “Christ” in the early church.
The stands that hold the processional cross and the tapers were made by Ed Mueller.
