Cynthia Michalak and Barbara Vandenburgh recognized it as well and noted it on the Reporter’s Facebook page.

According to Father Peter DeSanctis, pastor of Our Lady of the Isle, the beautiful statue and the ones of Jesus’s apostles, were secured by Father Virgil Power, Father DeSanctis’s predecessor, more than 40 years ago, from a retreat house in North Haven that was closing.

They have graced the cemetery ever since.
