Date Posted: Tuesday 21 January 2014
Icon of Saint Paul the Apostle (Dionysius) (detail)
On Sunday 26 January we celebrate the Conversion of Saint Paul, which is our patronal festival. The account of Paul’s conversion can be found in chapter 9 of the Acts of the Apostles: We also celebrate the anniversary of the dedication of our church building in 1883.
At 10.30 am High Mass, we shall join in procession with the icon of Saint Paul. The preacher is Father Stephen Holmes, who will be taking leave of us as he prepares to join the ministry team at the Church of Saint John the Evangelist in Princes Street. The choir will sing Mozart’s Coronation Mass and Herbert Howells’ setting of the Te Deum.
Following High Mass, there will be parish lunch in the church hall. All are welcome to join us.
