St Francis preaching to the birds.

This is a water colour by Catherine Tildesley, which can be viewed in Our Lady of Lourdes parish rooms.

Please take time to view the painting which is located on the wall just before you get to the kitchen.

Catherine had painted this to coincide with the Feast day of St Francis recently.

The original painting is housed in the Basilica of St Francis of Assisi, Assisi, Italy.
