LMS banner commissioned for Walsingham pilgrimage

The Oxford branch of the Guild of St Clare was honoured to be asked by the Latin Mass Society to create a banner featuring the two LMS patron saints, St Margaret Clitherow (for England) and St Richard Gwyn (for Wales). Five of the group's members collaborated on the project, which was supervised by Mary Lord.

Clockwise, from top left: Clare Auty, Lucy Shaw, Mary Lord and Emma Stevens put some finishing touches to the banner

  1. Well done to all involved, its a great piece and must have taken a huge amount of work!

  2. Wow! I've never imagined that a banner could be like something you would keep for generations!! How so well made, Lucy! I LOVE the work you and others put so much time and efforts and heart in! Absolutely beautiful!

  3. Well done all you Sewers, I've been dying to see the final result, I knew you'd make a brilliant job of it!!!!
