This symbolic portrayal of Mary's empty tomb in St. Joseph Church in Jim Thorpe represents the belief of many Christians that the pure and sinless body of Mary, the Mother of Jesus, was not left on Earth but was transferred to her Heavenly throne. In keeping with some European traditions associating the "Assumption of Mary" with harvest time, parishioners were asked to bring fresh fruit and vegetables in to fill this tomb of Mary. These donations will go to benefit those who rely on the church's food pantry for help.
