Building the Cross and Statue

At the summit of Apante stands a 33 meter Cross flanked by a 12 meter image of the Americas’ patroness, Our Lady of Guadalupe, reminding all that the victory of Christ over evil is the true fount of peace. Here, in the center of the Americas, the Holy Spirit is attracting thousands from around the world to pray for peace in the heart, in the family and in the world as they follow the 2 kilometer stations of the cross leading the top of Apante, the Mountain of Peace.
