Ellie Unveils Artwork at Salford Cathedral
St. Ambrose Barlow Sixth Form student Ellie unveiled her A Level artwork study of St Joseph at Salford Cathedral on the feast day of St. Joseph.
Ellie gave a brief talk about her inspiration to paint St. Joseph and Mark Wiggin, Director Caritas Diocese of Salford shared the Caritas story of St. Joseph.
This occasion was as a result of the success of the Christmas production of a ‘Modern Day Holy Family’, a reflection on the poverty of the world expressed through the lives of people experiencing hardships. Ellie produced the artwork for the advertisement for this and went on to base her A Level Art exam on St. Joseph. Her gift of the painting to Caritas is a reminder of how the St Ambrose Barlow and the diocese through Caritas collaborated on the Modern Day Holy Family initiative.
