WINONA, Miss. – (WCBI) The symbol for Christianity will soon stand tall in the center of Winona.

After eight years of planning, the site at the intersection of Hwy 82 and I-55 in Winona is finally under construction.

The foundation was poured Monday for the cross that will stand 120 ft. high and be lit in the evening.

Community members from Winona and Montgomery County raised $150,000 for the project.

One supporter says the cross symbolizes faith, patriotism and unity.

“The thought we had as that America is a great nation and we’re happy to live in It, but it seems we have been heading in the wrong direction a good little while. So, we wanted to do something to turn it around into a positive direction, even though it may be a small effort in a small community,” says supporter Tom Dulin.

Construction should be complete by the end of November.
