This statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary is located in front of Saint Hippolyte Church along Route 27 in Frenchtown, Pennsylvania. The statue is on a stone pedestal surrounded by a small garden. The statue depicts the Blessed Mother with her hands folded in prayer and a rosary draped over her arm. A plaque on the base notes that the statue was "placed in honor of Our Lady of Lourdes, in memory of Father Joseph L. Kerin, dedicated July 2, 1958."

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.
