In pictures: Celtic cross clean-up at Saint Paul’s

Members of Saint Paul’s Creation Care Committee, Coalition for Action in Downtown Augusta and the Colonial Dames cleaned the Fort Augusta monument, otherwise known as the Celtic cross, behind the historic Saint Paul’s Church on Reynolds Street on Sept. 16.

With Arts in the Heart of Augusta Sept. 15-17 and the annual Ironman triathlon on Sept. 24, downtown is in the spotlight and volunteers wanted to beautify the area for out-of-town guests as well as residents, according to Kevin de l’Aigle, a member of the Coalition for Action in Downtown Augusta.

The monument cleanup is part of Creation Care’s newest initiative, Sustaining Sacred Sites.
