A tribute to the treasure trove of ecclesiastical art and architecture in the Diocese of Toledo.
The First Station is the work of Dick Ottenweller (RIP), village blacksmith in Leipsic, and the Bishop's cousin. Dick was a civilian employee of the Navy in the Canal Zone during WWII, where he met a liturgical artist named Klemens Schmitt. They began collaborating after the war; Dick had a variety of Mr. Schmitt's designs which he could make in desired sizes in wrought iron.
