A Notable Addition to the Heritage Room

I am very pleased to report here that late last year we had a very attractive addition to the Brentford Heritage Room: a beautiful icon of St Mary Magdalene very kindly donated by Sr Mary Kenefick SMG, which is depicted here.

This icon was ‘written’ (as the painting of icons is traditionally described) during a retreat led by Amanda de Pulford at Minster Abbey, Kent, 16th-22nd July 2016. It fulfilled a long-held desire by Sr Mary to produce an icon, partly inspired by an icon of Our Lady produced by the late Sr Dympna Bermingham SMG. Those taking part were provided in advance with sketches of the saint to assist them in arriving at the form of the image.

Futher details can be found on our Archives Blog.
