Artist Captures Spirit of Jesus and His Sacred Heart

Anna Hayward from Sacred Heart Parish, Hove reports:
"The Church of The Sacred Heart, Hove now has a beautiful, eye-catching new board to invite Parishioners and passers-by to come to the church and have a thought for Jesus.

Painted by gifted local artist and neighbour to the church, Sara Abbott, the sign was unveiled and blessed on a sunny Sunday morning, with many Parishioners present.

Sara approached Parish Priest Fr Kevin Dring, saying that it was a project she had in heart to do for many years. Such was her inspiration, that once she started painting, the project was completed in just a couple of weeks.

The lifelike and modern depiction of Jesus has drawn many favourable comments and feedback, typically how it brings Jesus closer to our everyday lives."
