The Altar and Sanctuary in Incarnate Word Catholic Church
This life-size crucifix was originally crafted and constructed in Germany. The corpus of Jesus is hand carved from wood. It was donated in 1954 by the Harry Herklotz and Vasques families to St. Mary's of the Assumption in Bridgeton, Missouri, where it hung behind the altar for years. When the parish was closed - due to the expansion of Lambert Airport in St. Louis - the crucifix was to be moved to a warehouse. However, the day after the closing Mass at St. Mary's, the then Archbishop of the diocese of St. Louis Cardinal Justin Rigali called Bishop Robert Hermann (then pastor of Incarnate Word) to advise him that the crucifix was available. He and several IW parishioners took a truck over to St. Mary's and immediately transported this life-like icon back to their parish. The installation of the Crucifix - along with the movement of the tabernacle to the rear of the altar - completed the 2001 renovations to the sanctuary.
