Jesus in a Box

Decent weather and wasn't too hot, which is good because the brick and glass building is not air conditioned. There are stairs up and around Jesus. Be sure to look to the left of the left staircase and see the Holy Water spigot/faucet!

Christ on the cross.

Jesus in a Box

You can park in the church lot and walk right into the box holding Jesus (door was unlocked) for a very, very up close look.

Christ in a glass box.

Jesus in a Box

Resides beside St. Isidore Catholic Church...Right by the highway you can spot this giant Jesus in a box. It's weird and awesome and worth a stop for sure!

Just south of Abernathy on the interstate going south, there is a life-size (or larger) crucified Jesus in his own glass case.
