Our Lady Queen of Peace Statue
The 34 foot tall, 8,700 lb. statue of Mary by Wilmington sculptor Charles Parks was dedicated on May 26, 2007 by Bishop Michael A. Saltarelli. This tribute to Our Blessed Mother started with small meetings in the fall of 1999 and is now a reality for ours and future generations. It is a blessed and historic landmark.
The statue is located on the south side of Holy Spirit Parish grounds at 12
Winder Road, New Castle, Delaware 19720. It is clearly visible to motorists coming over the Delaware Memorial Bridge from New Jersey. Visit this Delaware shrine and be inspired by Our Lady reaching out to the world.
Directions: From Interstate 295…. Exit onto Route 9 North (first exit from I-295 in DE). Make a U-Turn at Memorial Drive Intersection. Turn right onto Halcyon Drive. Turn left in 300 feet into Holy Spirit Church parking lot.
