TWELFTH STATION; JESUS DIES ON THE CROSS
AMONG THE ARTIFACTS AT THE JESUIT CENTER ARE THE FOURTEEN STATIONS OF THE CROSS DONE IN NEEDLEPOINT.
SWEEPING DESIGNS AND VIVID COLORS! EACH STATION IS ABOUT 2.5' BY 1.75'.
These stations were acquired sometime before mid-century (Year ?) for the then "Novitiate of St. Isaac Jogues" by the benefactors of the Novitiate, Nicholas and Genevieve Brady.
Needlework and embroidery artist Lily Yeats created these pieces. Lily was the daughter of artist John Butler Yeats, the sister of W. B. Yeats and active in the Arts and Crafts Movement in England and Ireland in the first decades of the twentieth century
