Shedding Light Book Launch
You are warmly invited to the book launch of 'Shedding Light - a history of St. Columb's Anglican Church, Hawthorn through its stained-glass windows' by the Rev. Malcolm Woolrich. The book will be launched by the Rev. Canon Dr. Brian Rosner, Principal of Ridley College.
Shedding Light explores the rich history of St. Columb’s Anglican Church, Hawthorn, using its beautiful stained-glass windows as a point of reference. With more than 150 illustrations, it celebrates the artistry of some of Melbourne’s most gifted stained-glass creators, and remembers the lives of the parishioners to whom those windows are dedicated. Drawing extensively upon church records and newspaper reports across 140 years, it provides a careful historical examination of the significant influence and ministry of this local church. The meaning of the symbols and stories contained in these windows are analysed and explained, shedding light on the gospel message.
'Shedding Light' will be available for purchase at the launch for the special price of $50.
All proceeds of sale will go to St. Columb's Church. If you are unable to attend the launch, but would like to purchase a copy ($60 inclusive of postage) please contact Malcolm Woolrich via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Light refreshments will be provided.
