Fr. Stephen Hill OLSC has made us aware of a newly commissioned icon for the Australian Ordinariate:
Ordinariate commissions icon of Our Lady of the Southern Cross.
The Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of the Southern Cross has commissioned world-renowned iconographer Michael Galovic to create an Icon of Our Lady of the Southern Cross.
The completed icon will hang in the principal church of the Ordinariate, the Parish of St Ninian & St Chad in Perth, Western Australia.
The intent is to create a unique icon which can immediately be associated with the Ordinariate.
Hunter / Newcastle region Ordinariate Community in Formation priest Fr Stephen Hill recently visited Mr Galovic in order to discuss the final design for the icon prior to its commencement.
“The reality is that these days image and branding matters,” Fr Hill said. “So Monsignor Entwistle, our Ordinary, decided that we needed to create something that was both an object of devotion and something that we could truly call our own rather than borrowing things from other sources.”
Here Mr Galovic is photographed explaining the process of creating an icon to Fr Hill.
It is envisaged the icon will be completed in December.
