New St Finnan Icon
We are overjoyed with the beautiful new Ikon of Saint Finnan from the hand of Bede Martin in Musselburgh.
The ikon shows a way-pointing weather-worn bishop-hermit with his Green Island in the middle of Loch Shiel in the background. The water shows an abundance of salmon which was a discussion point between Finnan and Columba who shared much in this area. Saint Finnan is known locally as the Apostle of Moidart and his feast day is March 16th when we would hope – as we always hope – to get to the island and say a Moleiben.
The ikon will be blessed after the liturgy on October 5th 2014.
