Christ Statue in Front of Church Tower in Kralendijk, Bonaire
A group of Dutch Catholic nuns began a school here in 1856. In 1922, the Sisters of Roosendaal established the San Francisco Hospital. Eight years later, they dedicated this Christ statue. The inscription reads, “Sacred Heart of Jesus, I Trust in You.” In 1957, a humble chapel with a bell tower was constructed. These are now part of the Mariadal Foundation campus of medical facilities, the largest on the island.
