Icon of the Holy Trinity

Sr Annette of The Daughters of Mary and Joseph gave a talk on her work as an iconographer and explained the language and traditions of “writing” icons. She focussed on two icons in particular: the Pantocrator and the Holy Trinity and we were taken through meditations on these icons while we gazed at them and allowed them to speak to us.

Sr. Rose travelled to the event in the FISC mini-bus with several other students from various FISC programmes.
