Long Description:
This statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary is located in the cemetery behind Our Lady, Queen of the Americas Church on the corner of Water and South 9th Streets in Conneaut Lake, PA. The statue is on a stone pedestal surrounded by a small garden and three stone benches. The statue depicts the Blessed Mother with her arms outstretched. She is also shown standing on the head of a serpent. A plaque on the base notes that the statue was given, "in loving memory of Michael & Helen Balog."

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.
