One of the many blessings that our parish has received during the pandemic were the beautiful Masses that we were able to celebrate in the garden at Our Lady’s. We are planning to make even greater use of the garden next Spring and Summer – Masses; quiet area for personal reflection and prayer; social events etc.
As part of the preparations for this we commissioned a professional artist to give the outdoor statue of Our Lady a long overdue facelift. This work involved the artist completely removing the old flaky paint and preparing it for re-painting with a high-quality paint that will withstand the elements and bright sunlight. This work has now been completed and the statue is back in the parish and we are delighted with the result.
If you would like to make a donation towards the cost of this restoration project then please put this in an envelope and mark it ‘Statue Project’ and either post it through the presbytery door or place it in the basket in the church. Thank you
