Jonathan Pageau, the iconographer who created the wood icon of Christ pulling St. Peter out of the water, suffered severe flooding in his home when a nearby levee broke. He is in need of help.
The Parish Council decided the best way to help him would be through financial donations. If you could help Jonathan please make a check out to St. Peter’s with the notation Pageau on it. We will collect them and consolidate them in one one check then then contact Jonathan to see how to get it to him.
We feel an obligation to do this because of the superb work he did for St. Peter’s when he created the icon. Years from now, especially as Jonathan’s reputation grows, the full import and quality of his carving will be even more apparent.
See The Making of Christ Pulling Peter from the Water to learn more about the making of the icon.
