TYNGSBOROUGH — The Rev. Ronald St. Pierre is moved by noted wood carver Johannes Kirchmayer’s interpretation of the eighth Station of the Cross, which depicts Jesus encountering the women of Jerusalem.
“I have never seen a child in a Station of the Cross before,” said St. Pierre, pastor of Saint Mary Magdalen Church, admiring the ornate carving. “It’s very interesting that he is reaching out, as he, himself, is going to the cross. It’s such a tender moment.”
