THEY once languished in a Goulburn stonemason's yard, but these days 14 Italian crafted Stations of the Cross are now well established as the star attractions in a sacred garden in South Australia.
Former Goulburn Post photojournalist Lyn Terrey recently visited the garden at the Passionist Fathers' retreat at Glen Osmond, Adelaide and described the setting and restoration work as "stunning."
During her time at the Post, Mrs Terrey and former editor Maryann Weston led the campaign from 1999 to save the Franco Miozza-designed Carrara marble statues from being moved to South Australia.
At that stage they were firmly entrenched at St Michael's Novitiate in Kenmore St, where they had been on loan to the Mercy Sisters for many years.
