St. Pierre urged Leaver and the others if they had more questions about the subject, they should ask them in private. When asked about the sweater, though, St. Pierre revealed he was aware the garment was removed some months ago. "OK, now you see, you did that. Because someone took it off saying, 'What is this doing on the statue?' " he said to Leaver. "We don't normally clothe our statues." "She just looked so lonely and cold," Leaver responded. St. Pierre, who has been a pastor of the church for 13 years, stated again when the property is sold, the statue will come home. "She's already lost to me now," Leaver said. "Well, that's where you are," St. Pierre said.
