The party - The first time anybody has ever thrown a party to mark the 50th anniversary of their conversion - took place in the church hall after Mass celebrated by the parish priest, Father Paul Jennings. Over 100 people were present.
To mark the occasion, Christopher presented the parish with a wall-mounted figure, The Risen Christ crowned as Priest, Prophet and King, which is now displayed in the church hall.
"For the Church of England I have fond memories and lasting gratitude. There are so many Christian riches in the Anglican Church. Six of my best and dearest friends are Anglicans. But all the Christian riches of the Anglican Church put together cannot match the fullness one finds in full Communion with Rome," he says.
Christopher McOustra has written a book on Catholic Social Teaching, 'Love In The Economy', and has led pilgrimages in honour of Ste Jeanne d'Arc and St Thomas More. He is Co-Promoter of the Stations of the Resurrection in the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton."
