Statue of Columbus at St. Joseph's HospitalIn early 1892, in recognition of his sterling service for St. Joseph Church, the Reverend Father Florimond DeBruycker was granted leave by the Diocese to tour Europe and to visit his hometown in Belgium. He was greatly missed, and was warmly welcomed on his return. His Catholic church in Belgium, recognizing that 1892 was America's bicentennial, gifted DeBruycker a statue of Christopher Columbus. He planned to unveil it on Columbus Day. It depicted Columbus in the act of stepping on American soil for the first time, bearing a cross and a banner. The statue was fitted on a pedestal, and placed in the grounds of the new convent.
