The Feast of St Joseph

Images from the Chapel of St Joseph for today's feast. The design is the work of Christopher Hobbs, and was completed only two years ago.

The west wall of the Chapel shows the workshop of st Joseph, but also cleverly relates to the construction of the Cathedral.

The ceiling of the chapel resembles wicker-work, another reference to the workshop of St Joseph. The Cardinal's hat belongs to Cardinal Hinsley, buried in the chapel.
