Statue of Mary

Many churches have statues of saints throughout the building. Almost every church has a statue of Mary inside. Mary is very special because she is the Mother of God and the Mother of the Church.

Often, when you look at the altar, the statue of Mary is on the left-hand side. Sometimes, it is on a small side altar with seats in front, so people can come to church and pray quietly.
