Book on Our Parish Church
Tim Strickland writes: Parishioners will be interested to know that a great deal of information has been assembled and compiled on the following: The Opening of the Church in 1886, the Consecration of the Church in 1887, the decorations of the Sanctuary 1896, a Calendar of Events in the story of the Church, the Altar relics, the Lives of the Parish Priests, Aquinas Hall, the Clifford Family, the De Trafford Family, the Harding Family, World War One and its aftermath. A more thorough search of the Diocesan Archives is intended. My apologies for the time it is taking. I know you will understand, but I must explain that my current priority is to complete the life of my father for publication as soon as possible. I’m afraid that this has had to come first.
