During the summer of 1974, Lena Novello brought broken urns to Tognazzi Bros., a company that constructed monuments. While there, she was shown the forgotten statue of St. Ann, which was sent to Tognazzi Bros. in 1954 ahead of the centennial celebration of Saint Ann Church. At the time, the statue was valued at $3,500 and weighed three tons. Novello then started a fundraising campaign for the erection of the statue on the Saint Ann Church property.
