Archbishop Bernard Longley had now blessed the outdoor statue of Our Lady of Fatima which we restored for the children of Our Lady & St. Werburgh's school this April, as featured in the local news " The Sentinel".
(You may wish to read our previous post on this statue.)
As promised, photos of the finished Gothic statues, which had been awaiting restoration in our previous post, "Lenten Challenge".
The surfaces were restored to their original colours and decoration, which had been altered by a previous restorer; likewise the face and flesh areas were repainted to present a natural look...(rather than heavily applied make - up!)
