14b Horsham St. Faith, detail of pulpit, Virgin and Child with clerical donor,  The donor has a prayer scroll with words in English, addressing the Virgin as "Merciful Lady."  To the right is an image of St. Helena carrying a cross, the symbol of her discovery in the 4th century of what was believed to be the cross of Christ. As patron saint of the church, St. Helen (born a Briton) takes a place of honor next to the Virgin and Child.
