La Pieta' Replica at Holy Family

A Vatican-approved, full-size replica of Michelangelo's La Pieta' will be available for public viewing at Holy Family Catholic Community in Inverness through the end of May. The sculpture of Mary cradling the dead body of Christ in her lap is considered one of the masterpieces of sacred art. Francis Cardinal George participated in a Mass and blessing on Feb. 23, as part of the official unveiling of the sculpture.

La Pieta' will be on display throughout Lent and May, Mary's month, providing everyone throughout the Chicagoland area an opportunity to see this stunning and inspiring artwork during this significant time in the liturgical year. Holy Family is one of the first churches in the country to display the sculpture. The original sculpture in Rome is behind bulletproof glass and must be viewed from 30 feet away.

Holy Family Catholic Community is located at 2515 Palatine Road, Inverness, IL 60067. For more informaiton or directions, visit holyfamilyparish.org or call 847-359-0042.
