All Saints' Christmas Mural

  All Saints' Christmas Card adorns the exterior west wall of the church.
 The image is Holy Night by Carlo Maratta who painted in 17th century Rome
   The original is housed in the Gemaldegalarie Alte Meister, Dresden.

This picture is The Birth of Christ by Gaudenzio Ferrardi.

The date of the painting is unknown and its present location has not been revealed. The painter was born in Valduggia, Italy in 1475 and died in Milan in 1546. Otherwise, very little is known about him.

This idea is used annually by the Jesuit Fathers of Farm Street Church, Mayfair, London.

Father William Pearshall, parish priest of Farm Street, who kindly allowed us to renew our aquaintence with the work of Carlo Maratta. 

They are best viewed at night when illuminated.
