This statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary is located at Saint Mary Church, on the corner of State and Chestnut Streets in Conneaut, Ohio. The statue is in a niche above the main entrance to the church. The statue depicts the Blessed Virgin with her hands folded in prayer and a rosary draped over her arms. Saint Mary Church was closed in April 2023, but the statue remains in place at the church.

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.
