Mercy hosts blessing for returned cross | Health
Hospital administrators and members of the community will be blessing a symbol of hope this afternoon.
The rusty, 2.5-ton cross was taken down from the Logan County Memorial Hospital in July to be refurbished before being moved to Mercy Hospital Logan County.
Before making the move, the 5,200 pound steel cross went missing from the sign shop.
It was found just one day after our report at a Norman recycling yard.
The crews at West Recycling crush and compact metal daily.
However, the owner of the yard could not bear the thought of crushing the cross.
After it was returned to its new home, organizers installed the refurbished cross at the Mercy Hospital Logan County last month.
Now, the community is invited to celebrate its return with a blessing on Monday, Nov. 5.
The ceremony will being at 3 p.m. at the hospital, located at 200 S. Academy in Guthrie.
Guests will meet Sam Coury, who previously owned the cross and donated it to Mercy, and Sergio, the scrap yard owner who refused to melt the steel cross for scrap metal.
