Icon of Our Lady on tour

It's amazing how the Internet can lead you from one place to another! I had been reading in a transport union workers magazine about the work of an Anglican chaplain to seafarers and sailors who is based in Dubai; this led me to check the Catholic equivalent, called the Apostleship of the Sea.

They had an icon of Our Lady specially painted, and this icon is currently on tour around Great Britain; the tour started last April, and continues until next May. More details here.

We had the icon in my parish for a few days in August. It was a great idea and increased the daily Mass attendance.
