The Lady Chapel

The Lady Chapel


Over in the right hand corner of the Church is another altar often used for Mass on weekdays when there are only a few people.

Behind it is another Tabernacle in which are kept the Holy Oils. Those Tabernacle is decorated with a pelican feeding her young with blood from her breast – an ancient symbol of how Christ, through his sacrifice feeds and supports us.  Above the tabernacle is a wooden figure of Christ in Majesty. With one hand he blesses us whilst in the other he holds a book on which is written words in Latin: translated they mean “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.”

The Chapel ready for an early morning Mass in the first week of Advent 2015.
