100th Birthday Celebrations for Peacehaven Parishioner

John and his wife, Charlotte at Mass
Cathy Greegan from The Church of the Immaculate Conception, Peacehaven, reports:
"We had great cause for rejoicing recently as John Morrow celebrated his 100th Birthday. As many as 100 family members travelled from as far afield as Australia, Ireland and Wales to mark this special milestone. John received a Birthday card from Her Majesty the Queen, as well as congratulations letter from Mr Michael Higgins, President of Ireland.

John and his wife Charlotte, also celebrated their 72nd Wedding Anniversary a few days later. They have 7 daughters, 22 grandchildren and 34 great grandchildren.

John is a devout Catholic and until recently attended daily Mass whenever possible. He was a SVP member for some 30 years, as well as church treasurer and he was a reader at Mass until his late nineties.

The congregation joined the family for a celebration buffet in the packed church hall after mass."
