Our branch banner – displayed on the North wall of the nave – is worthy of note.   The banner, designed and made by Merle Bown, was commissioned in 1984 just after St Robert’s branch was formed; the subtle and imaginative design, which features St Robert’s Cross in red and blue, symbolises the elements and vessels of the Eucharist, with the figures of Virgin Mother and Child forming patens and chalices.
