Crosses on St. Peter lawn in a previous year. More than 3,500 crosses represent the approximate number of children aborted in the United States every day.

On Saturday, parishioners from Geneva’s St. Peter Catholic Church installed more than 3,500 crosses on the church’s lawn as a protest against abortion.

The number of crosses represents the more than 3,500 abortions performed every day in the U.S., church officials said.

The event was done in conjunction with the Catholic Church’s Respect Life Month in October.

A Respect Life Memorial Garden also will be built on the south of St. Peter’s church building during October. It is scheduled to be dedicated by Bishop David J. Malloy of the diocese of Rockford on Oct. 20.
