Our Altar Stone...

When our friends Jack and Judith were staying with us, we asked Jack if he would do us the honour of consecrating the altar stone for Willowbrook Park's chapel for us (Jack being an Anglican Bishop).

The beautifully carved altar stone was given to us as a gift by our friend and architect, Chris, and his wife Robyn. It is made out of Carrara marble, and the documentation of the consecration of the stone along with a relic of St Catherine of Sienna (shown below) are now sealed inside the stone in a small recess.

I thought I would post a picture of our altar stone and our small oratory at Eden, our current residence, as it will have to be dismantled at the end of this month, and the room redressed as a bedroom prior to placing our house on the market - Yes, the big day is looming and if all goes to plan we will sell our house this summer and shift into the carriage house in the autumn whilst the manor is being completed.

So, here are a couple of pictures of our chapel, as we prepare to say goodbye to our little sanctuary, and prepare for the next part of the journey.
