In the centre is the Virgin Mary, seated and cradling her son. On either side of the figures are two ships. The first is that which carried St Augustine and his monks to England in the sixth century, bringing with them the Christian faith; and the second is the Windrush, which brought many who renewed the faith in the areas where they settled. The side panels depict St Michael the Archangel, St George the Martyr, St John, St Martin de Porres (patron saint of racial justice) and St Josephine Bakh
