Paper Lace, St. Blase, Sterling Heights

This delicately crafted paper lace cross hangs over the Baptismal Font at St. Blase Church in Sterling Heights. This piece of art was created by the Arts and Environmental Council, led by Kathy McGrath. There were many steps in the process, from creating the pattern, preparing the paper, making the cuts and frame and hanging the piece. Unbelievably, it took only about 20 hours! The talent of this group was also recruited to make spiritual paper lace panels that are now being used by a Military Chaplain in Afghanistan. More info: St
