MADISON, Miss. (WJTV) – Leaders with St. Joseph Catholic School announced student-created ceramic crosses in honor of Ukraine are being sold.
The crosses, some painted with Ukraine’s colors and others with Ukraine spelled down the cross, are being sold for $5 for small ones and $10 for large ones. All of the money that’s being raised will go to the Catholic Diocese of Jackson’s relief efforts for Ukraine.
“When I first learned that Russia invaded Ukraine and then saw what Ukrainians are going through, I just felt we needed to do something,” said Lou Ann Turner, an art and ceramics teacher at St. Joe. “This was the first thing that came to mind: beautiful, hand-made crosses.”
The crosses are made, painted and decorated by students in Turner’s pottery class.
