Mercy Hospital honoring Catherine McAuley

This piece is about to be installed and dedicated at Mercy Hospital in Saint Louis after nearly two years of research, concept drawings, meetings and then finally the sculpture!  The sculpture depicts the life and ministry of Catherine McAuley, founder of the Sisters of Mercy.  This piece illustrates 10 different vignettes from her life, all incorporated into one scene.  The  setting is Dublin in the 1830′s and the pivotal scene shows her as she welcomes a distressed young (and very pregnant) mother into her newly built home on fashionable Baggot St., where the mother would find help, hope, and hospitality.
