New Cross Installed at Holy Land in Waterbury

Concentric Tool and other local companies joined forces to donate the structure and materials, engineering, and electrical work.

On Nov. 1, city officials took down the steel cross to make room for a new one.

Crews said the cross was transported in three pieces on Thursday. The 13 ton, 57 feet tall and 26 feet wide cross was brought the Holy Land property.

Once erected on top of Pine Hill on Friday, the cross will be visible from all angles and lit at night. Lights alone cost nearly $100,000. It has 5,000 LED bulbs.

All of the work and the cross is valued at almost $500,000. It took a month and a half to create, but, the crews all wanted to be a part of the mission that brings back Holy Land.
