This year we mount a display of art posters created by the Benedictine Nuns of Turvey Abbey in Bedford UK. These inspired illustrations of Christ's journey to the cross are presented to us through colour and symbol. Extremely rich in colour the images trace Christ's journey to the cross, from Peter's denial of his master and Jesus's willing acceptance of his cross to the crucifixion and entombment. This display will be accompanied by decorated crosses created by The Umbrella Club in 2014.
