St. Mary, Norwalk

Stations of the Cross. The pedestals are as impressive as the stations.

I've always wondered, is there an "original" of this set of Stations of the Cross? I've been to several parishes that have the similar design.

Quite possible. They could have been available through a church supplies company.

When my wife and I visited Norwalk a couple years back - deciding whether we wanted to move our family here, we took one look at those Stations and at the high altar and knew this was the parish we wanted to attend.

They were installed in 1919...Donnated as well. They've been restored several times. But i have no clue where they are from.

Jay: That's awesome. Usually when people come to norwalk, all they hear about it St. Pauls, so they go there. That's basically why our school failed. Kudos to you guys!

I wish I could find good pictures of St. Paul's. Their web presence is practically non-existant.

The Ressuressifix over the altar at St. Paul's and the fact that the Tabernacle wasn't centrally located on the altar but rather in a side chapel immediately turned us off.

We also like the smaller, family-like atmosphere at St. Mary.

So they have one of those "Crucifixion-deniers" over the altar? Sounds like the place has problems.
