LIVERPOOL CATHEDRAL CELEBRATING 50 YEARS
- A LOOK BACK AT OUR COMMEMORATIVE ISSUE
The rooftop garden at the Academy of St Francis of Assisi (ASFA) has undergone a beautiful transformation during lockdown.
With the help of staff volunteers, Chaplain Phil Johnson has created a ‘Peace Garden’ for the school community to enjoy once students and staff are back in full time.
The unique garden, which sits on the top of the school building, has been tidied up and a number of colourful plants have been planted, alongside a statue of Jesus Christ which offers visitors the chance to collect their thoughts and think about their faith.
Phil said: “I hope this will be a peaceful garden where students and staff can just be still and reflect. Environments like this can help us connect with God and focus our prayers.
“The garden is certainly a therapeutic place and is ideal for contemplation and reflection.”
