This statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary is located on the North East campus of Mercyhurst University, near the corner of North Lake and West Division Streets in North East, Pennsylvania. Prior to its purchase by Mercyhurst, the campus was the location of Saint Mary Seminary of the Redemptorist Order. This statue of Mary stands on a stone pedestal and depicts her with her hands folded in prayer.

The Blessed Virgin Mary is venerated by Christians as the Mother of the Word Incarnate, Our Lord Jesus Christ. As a young girl betrothed to St. Joseph, Mary was visited by the angel Gabriel and told that she would conceive a son by the Holy Ghost, who would be the Son of God. In humble obedience to the divine messenger, Mary replied, "Behold the handmaid of the Lord, be it done to me according to thy word." In Bethlehem, her Son was born and was adored by shepherds and kings. As is known throughout the world, this Son, Jesus Christ, went on to suffer on the cross and rise again, offering salvation to the world through Him. Today, Mary is venerated as the Mother of God and Queen of Heaven.
