The symbol linking our church to
a fourth century Dorset chapel
The 'Ch-Rho' on our altar and tabernacle plinth in St Joseph's Church stands for the first letters of Christ in Greek. In 1963 a Roman mosaic was discovered at a possible Christian chapel in Hinton St Mary featuring perhaps the oldest image of Jesus in the world and this same symbol. Listen to this fascinating 13 minute BBC clip.
(Sadly the British museum recently broke most of it up.
Perhaps we should ask for its return now to Dorset...)
