THE STORY OF AN ELM TREE

5 December 2016

 

This is a story that echoes loudly in our Christian tradition. Again, the wood of a tree serves to carry the body of Christ.

There once was an elm tree growing in the grounds of St Joseph’s Mount, Rahamim, in Bathurst. Despite its removal as changes were made in the grounds, it now lives on as an Altar, Lectern, Tabernacle shelf, lamp stand and candle stands. Created with skill and love, the altar was dedicated on the occasion of the Centenary of the St Joseph’s Mount Chapel and the Sesquicentenary of the Sisters of Mercy arrival in Bathurst.
