On Sunday May 8, St Paul’s Sunday School welcomed an extra special visitor.

Catalina Echeverri, who has a family connection with the church, is the extremely talented illustrator of an exciting new children’s book ‘The Garden, The Curtain and The Cross’.

Catalina Echeverri was born in Columbia. She studied Graphic Design in Milano, Italy and Children’s Book Illustration in Cambridge, England before settling in London.

Written by Carl Laferton, ‘The Garden, The Curtain and the Cross’ perfectly captures the timeless good news of Jesus in an engaging way for little ears to understand.

“The children of St. Paul’s have been reading the book together for several weeks, and it was so exciting to have Catalina join us to read some of the story together, talk about her inspiration for her art and answer the many questions the children had,” explained Sunday School Teacher Emma McCrossan.

“Catalina also shared how important it is to hold on to God in good times and bad- a message that is worth hearing at any age.”
