27161Shelter for The Holy Family$30.00Description
This pierced-metal backdrop was created to complement The Holy Family, though it can be used as a beautiful backdrop for other angels or figures as well.
“The repetitive swirling concentric mark-making is suggestive of twinkling stars at night. The roof is an intertwined, organic structure that suggests a bower of twigs or branches. Since the surface patterning is complex with tiny elements, I wanted to pare down the form to the simplest possible. It’s basically a single sheet of pierced metal, curved to allow it to stand and represent a shelter for The Holy Family and animals.”
Giving watch, warmth, protectionSheltering Animals for The Holy Family$48.00Description
This four-piece set of animals was designed to specifically fit the small, intimate scale of The Holy Family.
“The Sheltering Animals are proportional in scale to The Holy Family… smaller versions of other animals I’ve carved, with a few little tweaks in the details. I like that the gestures of their heads and ears express watchful attentiveness. My favorite is the goat – he shows his personality in his stance!”

Her name is Mary. His name is Joseph. The baby, JesusThe Christmas Story$100.00Description
The Christmas Story is the largest-scale nativity created by Susan Lordi. The two figures are approx. 15" tall, and are best displayed in the Sanctuary.
The expressive gestures of Mary and Joseph reveal their humanity, and portray their overwhelming emotion of love and protection for their newborn child. The two-piece set of Mary holding baby Jesus, and Joseph is the centerpiece of The Christmas Story. The figures are nearly 15” tall, and painted with richly layered colors. The elegant movement of Mary’s and Joseph’s garments, and their protective gestures bring this composition to the highest levels of sculptural art.
The pieces relate to each other when placed on the base of the Sanctuary. Mary is turned in toward Joseph, sheltered by his right arm. Joseph’s staff and cloak form a protective shield around his new family. Joseph’s left hand, positioned above the head of baby Jesus, shadows the curve of Mary’s wrist. This is a historically symbolic gesture of blessing and protection.
“The Christmas Story is a story from the past… but the overwhelming emotions of holding a new baby, starting a new family, and wanting to protect them forevermore are present today in every culture and every age. My hope is that the gestures of Mary and Joseph will represent these powerful feelings of love and protection.”

We bought these pieces in Belluno and we just loved them immediately. At home we decorated them with little flashing stars that made it bright. They give us a beautiful sense of peace and calm. Thank you very much for these spiritual statues! Marco and Valentina.Read More >
