The Icon, made in the Monastery of St John in the Desert, near Jerusalem, was gifted to Pax Christi International in 1999. The people and stories depicted on the ICON, from Eastern and Western Christian traditions and from scripture, open our eyes to forgiveness and reconciliation as part of making peace. It is a most powerful resource and we are delighted to make it available to our members and supporters around the country.
In September 2018 the ICON was featured in a parallel programme at the ‘Adoreumus’ Eucharistic Congress in Liverpool. The Icon went on to be featured at some Liverpool Parishes and then The Icon traveled to Hallam Diocese for the Diocesan Justice and Peace day in October where it was used as a focus point for other activities in the Diocese.
Please be sure to get in touch with us soon if you are interested in booking the Icon for 2019 to host in your parish, community or school as places will quickly fill up in the months ahead. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
