Our Lady in The Emmaus Room

In 2014 Mike Painter created a carving of Our Lady for us.  We were lucky enough to be involved in the project from the maquette stage to completion.  See below a selection of photos including some helpers who had a go carving, under Mike's expert instruction.

Our beautiful carving was blessed by Bishop Peter in November 2014 and can be seen in The Emmaus Room.

    We were very fortunate to have Bishop Peter join us on the very day Mike Painter delivered our carving. Bishop Peter celebrated Mass with us and blessed the carving.
