The Altar Mural
The Mural painted on the wall above the Altar is quite stunning.
In larger than life size figures, the centre section shows Jesus with St.Peter standing on the left, and St.Paul standing on the right. St.Peter is holding the "Key to the Kingdom", while St.Paul is holding the "the Sword of the Spirit". Both are gazing at Jesus.
On the left side, is a picture of Jesus standing in a boat, while St.Peter gazes at Jesus in astonishment at the large catch of fish. St.Peter is saying "You should avoid me, Lord, for I am a sinful man", while Jesus replies "Follow me, and I will make you a Fisher of People".
On the right side, is a picture of St.Paul's conversion on the road to Damascus, where he encountered the Risen Christ. You can see St.Paul fallen to the ground, while his companions, seeing only the bright light, are bewildered.
All this surmounts a beautiful marble Altar and marble sanctuary, lit by the altar candles, and shining to the Glory of God, a fitting place for the Sunday Offering of the Sacrifice of Christ at the Altar.
Thus this Mural combines the two fold emphasis of this parish: Conversion to Christ, and Following Christ. Jesus is front and centre, as He should be. Now you can see why this parish is called: "Sts. Peter and Paul Church".
Below the Altar Mural you can see 4 angels, representing each of the 4 Gospels (St.Matthew, St.Mark, St.Luke, and St.John),
The Mural was handpainted in the new church by a local artist in 1974. The signature of the painter is visible in the right hand corner, in the original.
