God 'determined to call together in the holy Church those who believe in Christ'

Lumen Gentium

Faith and Life


This icon, from Romania, was loaned to Shrewsbury Cathedral by our friends of the Shrewsbury Greek Orthodox Community in Lent 2011, to show their solidarity with us in the Diocesan Year of Prayer with our Lady.

At the Mass to end that Marian year, their parish priest, Father Stephen Maxfield, generously gave the icon to Bishop Mark Davies for the Cathedral.

Bishop Davies in return gave them a photograph of the stained glass window depicting Our Lady, Help of Christians in the Cathedral. That photograph now has a place in the Greek Church, near the Holy Table.
