Artist's Description

A sculpture of Saint Rose Philippine Duchesne created by Adam Long in honor of this faithful missionary who came to America to convert the Potowatomy Indians in the 19th century. There is much symbolism in the sculpture: She strides forward in prayer confident in God's guidance. Her habit becomes the base of an oak tree which has two meanings.
