Photograph of Jonah Jones rood cross relocated to Hurst Green from the former Loyola Hall

The great wooden rood cross carved in the mid-1960s by Jonah Jones for the former Loyola Hall Jesuit retreat centre in Rainhill, Merseyside, was relocated in 2012 to the new chapel of St Joseph’s School in Hurst Green, Lancashire. An article published at the time on stpetersstonyhurst.org.uk has just come to light, with this photograph. It shows the rehung rood cross, flanked by two new stained-glass windows by Sarah Galloway commissioned for the chapel.
