Corpus Christi, Texas is about to become the home of the tallest cross in the Western hemisphere and the SECOND largest cross in the world!
Construction will begin shortly with the laying of the foundation and the cross will be completed in about a year! The foundation of the Corpus Christi Cross will be a 38′ x 38′ concrete pad supported by twenty four piers, each 2 feet in diameter and 48 feet deep underground.
