Bruce Moulthrop, left, warden of St John’s Episcopal Church, was joined by Selectman James Gaston, Father Mark Moore, Adam Meyer (partially hidden), Richard Gray, five local Scouts and a color guard of Sandy Hook and Sullivan (Me.) firefighters for the brief dedication ceremony of Rock of Angels on Monday behind St John’s Church.

Rock of Angels was loaded onto a 63-foot flatbed truck last week and driven to Sullivan, Me. It will begin its trip south on Saturday, stopping in Hartford on Sunday for a special event, and will arrive in Newtown on Monday, August 12. The monument’s placement in a small field behind St John’s Episcopal Church in Sandy Hook will offer a quiet, permanent place for anyone who wants to pay their respects to those killed on 12/14.

As of Monday, February 11, Richard Gray said his project to honor those who died in Sandy Hook on 12/14 was going full throttle. The only problem is, the nearly seven-ton granite memorial that is taking shape under the hands of craftspeople in Downeast Maine currently has not been guaranteed a site in Newtown.
Town officials in Newtown have not spoken directly with Mr Gray, a recent resident of Merritt Island, Fla., and former longtime resident of Gouldsboro, Maine, according to Sue Marcinek, executive assistant to First Selectman Pat Llodra.
