Some weeks ago a few Catholic men in Pittsfield wanted to find a way for them to express their faith in a simple manner while also focusing attention on the importance of Sunday in the life of the Christian.
Their prayer group of twelve men saw an article about white crosses placed on their private property every Sunday. Now every Sunday Pittsfield is filled with white crosses. They named their project Crosses for Chirst and it quickly took on an ecumenical nature.
For a cost of $5, the group will make a cross, paint it white, and install an insert into your yard that can easily be mowed over.
They've put up two instructional videos on YouTube:
Update: To date, 700 homes in Pike County (Illinois) have the crosses in their yards, with an additional 10-20 homes per week.
