Sister Mary Michael has drawn up plans for a 24 foot high cross to tower above her North Hykeham bungalow and illuminate in the night.
The nun claims the towering cross is not just for her but for the community as well.
Sister Mary Michael hit the headlines seven years ago when she objected to filming of the movie The Da Vinci Code in Lincoln.
The plans have been met with a mixed reaction amongst people in North Hykeham.
Lincolnshire Council will make a decision after consultation about the plans ends on Friday.
