The One Hundred and Fiftieth Birthday of Saint Peter's

It was on October 2, 1869 that the present Saint Peter's was consecrated. That means that beginning on October 2, 2019 we will be celebrating our 150th birthday. We intend the celebrations to spread throughout the year from October 2, 2019 to October 2, 2020 and we want them to contribute to our wider mission and ministry.

We began with a joyful Festival Mass on October 2 at 7.30 p.m., with choir, servers, organist, many invited guests, and the Bishop of Beverley as our principal celebrant and preacher.
