St Aidan’s Golden Jubilee Mass was celebrated on 5th December 2021
Parishioners from St Aidan’s Parish, Winstanley, held a wonderful celebration on Sunday 5 December to mark the golden jubilee of their parish. Mass was celebrated in the church by Bishop Tom Neylon together with Father John Causey, Canon Pat MacNally, Father John Johnson and Deacon Jim Cardy. It was great to see so many parishioners joining together in this celebration after such a long separation for so many.
At the beginning of Mass Bishop Tom blessed a commemorative stone in the foyer of the church where everyone can see it. The stone was bought by the parish to mark the anniversary.
The celebration continued next door in St Aidan’s Parish centre, where it was a pleasure for parishioners to meet our new Auxiliary Bishop. 50 wonderful years of service to the community all celebrated in a safe but joyful way.
