Maker Monday » Antonio Gonzalez

During Holy Week 2019, Antonio Gonzalez, from Monterrey, NL Mexico, made 20 crosses with several groups of children in rural Mexico.

His family joined six other families on a mission trip to teach Catholic catechism to children and adults. They performed traditional Catholic rituals from Palm Sunday to Easter. During the week, they also worked on crafts—Antonio led the children to build 9-inch crosses. 

He cut all the pieces ahead of time, and the kids did the gluing and assembly work. After the crosses we're built, Antonio cleaned the crosses, sanded them, and applied varnish from a spray can.

The project was a success. And now these children have something to remember the love Antonio and his family shared with them.
