I am delighted to be able to say that Sr Petra Clare called the other night to say she will be due to visit York and would like to come to Forest Hall to give a talk on icons. Sister lives at the Sancti Angeli Benedictine Skete at Cannich in Inverness-shire. She painted two icons for St Wilfrid`s church in Gateshead when I was there and I have asked her to paint two for St Mary`s. However first we have to raise the funds and we need nearly £5,000. I have asked for one of the Annunciation for the left of the tabernacle and one of the coronation of Our Lady for the right to represent the first and last mysteries of the Rosary.
Sister will be giving her talk on the evening of Sunday 6th May at 7pm.
