Feast Day Artwork

Following Mass, which was celebrated by Cardinal John Dew, our Feast Day artwork was unveiled and blessed.  This year this is a set of Rosary Beads which were designed and created by Nikki Payne.  Each form class was assigned a bead and together they made the Rosary.  We are so pleased with the result and the beads hang proudly on the wall in the Lawson Foyer.  They will be a constant reminder of Mary our Mother and her love for us.
