Weighing more than 3,000 pounds and standing more than 12 feet high, the new bronze statue of William Joseph Chaminade took some extra help to set into place at the Chaminade University/Saint Louis School campus this past November. The statue was created by sculptor Joe Aspell to honor the 250th anniversary of Chaminade’s birth, and is visible from the campus’s main entry on Wai‘alae Avenue. “There’s already a smaller statue of Father Chaminade on the upper campus,” says Chaminade director of communications Kapono Ryan. “It’s of him when he was older. This new one shows him when he was younger. He looks more fiery.”
