Processional Crosses - Crucifixes - by PEMA Woodcarvings
Each processional crucifix includes the heavy wooden base, pole, and cross/corpus. These wood crucifixes are designed to be carried in processions on Holy Days, or to be carried into the sanctuary at the start of the worship service by a crucifer. The crucifer may recess with the cross during the closing hymn. Church custom dictates whether or not the processional cross will be carried to the center of the church for the reading of the Holy Gospel. In some congregations this style crucifix is not regularly carried into the sanctuary, but stands next to the pulpit or in another conspicuous place to point us to Christ.
These units are beautifully hand made and painted in the vivid tradition of the Val Cardena carvers. Each wooden processional cross is a uniquely constructed piece of art carved and crafted by skilled Italian artisans.
Each style processional cross is available in three sizes:
Baroque Processional Cross Sizing:
- The 75" unit has a 9" corpus on 22" cross.
- The 81" unit has a 12" corpus on a 28" cross.

Speak with your parish pastor about offering a donation of art to beautify the house of the Lord.
