As restoration continues at St. Rose Church, one important element has been put back in place.

The seven-foot cross once adorned the top of the steeple at the church and today(6/7/18) it made it's way back home. The cross is made of copper and dates back to the 1870s. Wellman Brothers out of Coldwater did the restoration and placed it back high atop the steeple this morning.

A two-year restoration of the church is just about complete. The placement of the cross is one of the last projects. Left to finish is the roof and exterior windows which should be complete by late fall.
