5oth Anniversary of the building of Ss Peter & Paul Church
Our Year of Golden Jubilee events started on Sunday 28th June 2015 remembering the Anniversary of the first Opening of the Church of Ss Peter & Paul [when the ‘living stones’ of our parish transferred from Our Lady of The Snows in 1965 to which they had previously moved from Midford Castle in the 1890’s] which then took place on 29th June 1965 on the feast of Ss Peter & Paul and we are towards the end now and our Bishop joined us on Wednesday 29th June 2016 which was our patronal feast.
Golden Jubilee Holy Mass
Bishop Declan celebrated a special Jubilee Holy Mass on Wednesday 29th June on the Solemnity of Ss Peter & Paul to mark the 50th Anniversary of the building of our Church. Children from St John's Catholic Primary School and Prior Park College sang beautifully during Holy Mass. It was a most prayerful and joyous occasion when we gave thanks to God for all the blessings given to our parish over it's long history. The occasion began with Mr Rupert Bevan sounding the Jubel for the Jubilee. We celebrated afterwards with Bubbly, a wonderful cake made by our baker extraordinaire Aliette, and photos were taken of the younger members of the congregation with Bishop Declan.
