The cross is 11 feet long and the figure of Jesus measures 5 feet, 5 inches.</p><p>It was put in place in 1962 and moved to its current location in 1984. A once-a-year winter viewing is held when the ice is firm enough.</p><p>Visitors can park Saturday at Sunset Park, then walk to where a large hole has been cut in the ice. Viewing hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Coordinators say the showing will be canceled if the ice becomes unstable, but conditions look favorable.</p><p>On the city&#39;s website it says organizers believe it&#39;s, &quot;the only freshwater shrine in the world dedicated to divers.&quot; Sat, 05 Mar 2011 19:24:47 +0000 Kyle Norris 1518 at http://michiganradio.org Underwater crucifix memorial
