On May 3rd 2016 Bishop Terry along with Canon Pat, local clergy, guests and parishioners joined together to celebrate a Mass of Dedication for our church.

During the Mass the alter was blessed with water, anointed with oil of chrism and incensed. The gathered clergy and parishioners were also blessed with water and incensed.

The first reading was taken from Genesis 28:11-18 and the Gospel from John 14:6-14.

After communion children from St Therese of Lisieux Primary school choir sung a selection of hymns including a new hymn they had written themselves. It was an uplifting and fitting end to a wonderful celebration.

 

After Mass we shared a buffet to complete what was a memorable day for all parishioners.
