The circular floor mosaic being laid by Michael McFadyen

The much-anticipated reopening of St Andrew’s Cathedral in Glasgow next month has moved a step closer with the laying of a stunning circular floor mosaic.

Tens of thousands of stones from around Bethlehem have been fashioned in green, yellow, white and blue by Jerusalem craftsmen to depict the coat of arms of the Archdiocese of Glasgow. The work was flown to Glasgow last week to be laid by parishioner Michael McFadyen of Tilecraft.

Archbishop Conti said: “It is a wonderful link between Glasgow and its twin city Bethlehem.”
