Volunteers erect giant sculpture at St. John's, Sandwich

For nearly 20 years, St. John's Church in Sandwich has displayed a giant illuminated sculpture representing the shield of The Episcopal Church in the garden at the front of the church at 159 Main Street, starting Thanksgiving week and continuing through Christmas.

The illuminated wire sculpture was originally commissioned by the church and created by Michael Magyar, Sandwich glass artisan, as part of the communitywide holiday lighting effort that he spearheaded early in the 2000s.

The Rev. Barbara Peterson, interim rector, pointed out that every year the giant reminds residents and visitors that St. John’s welcomes people of all faiths and persuasions to join in the many worship services and activities that are featured in November and December.
