A Stations of the Cross plaque is for sale on Craigslist said to be “from a church in the North End” by a seller named Rhonda in Newbury. The listed price is $145.
The item piqued the interest of North Ender and accomplished historian, Jessica Dello Russo. Her father went to St. Mary’s and thinks it might have once hung in the Jesuit basilica of St. Mary’s (the larger, “upper church”), demolished back in the mid-late 1970’s. Saint Mary’s Church was said to have been the most beautiful church in the North End. It would be interesting to learn that some of the decorative elements of its interior might have been saved.
Before I call Rhonda, do any NorthEndWaterfront.com readers recognize it?
