The striking header on our web page is one of many paintings that were done on sheets of newspaper, prior to making the multi-coloured kneeler covers in our church. Using colour and newspaper was a way for Rosemary Whitehead and her homeless friends to depict the little boat that we see being tossed in the waves in a storm in the central window behind the main altar. We are all tossed by the waves in the storms of life.
In this window, our patron saint, St Canice, is seen praying for his close friend St Columba with his monks in a small wooden boat, a curragh, being swamped by huge waves in a storm, as they cross to Iona to bring Christianity to Scotland in the sixth century. St Canice, Pray for Us!
