PINE BLUFFS, Wyo. (AP) - Roman Catholics from Wyoming, Colorado and Nebraska marked the 20th anniversary of a shrine featuring one of the largest concrete sculptures in the U.S.

A 30-foot (9-meter) sculpture of the Virgin Mary stands at the center of the Our Lady of Peace Shrine outside Pine Bluffs in southeast Wyoming.

It’s the largest sculpture in Wyoming.

Nearby at the shrine are 14 carvings representing the Stations of the Cross, a series of events in the life of Jesus. The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports a Mass and devotional prayers took place at the shrine Saturday.

Ted and Marjorie Trefren of Cheyenne built the shrine in 1999 after touring shrines in Europe.
