The three other monuments will be erected at the Upsala, Elmdale and North Prairie parishes.

Father Gregory Mastey has been one of the leaders in obtaining the monuments.

The monuments depict the Blessed Virgin Mary with tears in her eyes, holding an infant over the world. An inscription on the monument reads: “Life, God’s Gift” and “In loving memory of the unborn.”

The monuments are in conjunction with a national effort by the Knights of Columbus to protect and respect life in all stages.

KC Council 12604 thanked Little Falls Monument President Ron Nagel and staff, Wee Trees Nursery, Reis Lumber and everyone who helped with the projects.
