Golden Jubilee in Rotherfield

Fr Matin, Bishop Kieran and Fr Kevin
Earlier this year St Peter's Rotherfield looked back to 1963 in celebrating the Golden Jubilee of the consecration of the church. We were privileged that Bishop Kieran was able to concelebrate Mass with both our former priest Fr.Kevin Gaskin and our present priest Fr.Martin O'Connor and that Yvonne Kennedy whose family were prime movers in getting the church built was present and is still an active member of the parish.

The Mass was beautifully sung in Latin with an especially lovely Ave Verum and afterwards we all gathered at Nick and Daphne Bagshawe's house to celebrate with liquid refreshments.
