An Update on the Cardinal's Room


Conservation work has been completed on the baldacchino that hangs over the altar in our Cardinal's room at the Oratory.
Pictures below show the canopy before and after the process of careful restoration of the badly damaged fabric, which was completed late last year.
The altar and canopy were installed in Saint John Henry's room in 1879, when he was elevated to the cardinalate, to fulfil a requirement of his new state.
To the right of the altar are pictures of the many friends who had been dear to him through his life, and for whom he prayed during Mass.
