The Mission Cross
Installed in St Mary's Cathedral: 2022
Four Corners of the World
The Cross Crosslet is a heraldic cross consisting of four Latin Crosses arranged at right-angles to each other with the tops pointing to the 'four corners of the world'. Representing the four evangelists: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John it is considered as a symbol of the evangelising mission of the Church affording an alternative name: Mission Cross. There are four such crosses inscribed in the sanctuary floor which with the altar at their centre combine to evoke the Five Wounds of Christ.
