New Guide Book Launched

Excitement for the long awaited Guidebook for the Shrine Church of Saints Peter, Paul and Saint Philomena.

We have been researching the heritage of the church, collecting photos, stories and generally playing detective under the careful guidance of Graphic Designer, Mark Proctor and Editor, local Architectural Historian, Peter de Figuereido. The new Guide Book is nearly ready.

The book will be sent to proof readers on Monday 24th March and to the printers on Friday 28th March, so that it will be available for the congregation, libraries and local history groups for Holy Week on Monday 14th April.

The book has been sponsored by Heritage Lottery Fund as part of our first project to restore this church. The first 1000 copies of the book are free of charge, although donations towards the cost would be welcome.

Many thanks to all our contributors who have given their time, expertise, memories and photos.

More photos and memories needed for the next HLF project

If you are interested in contributing to a display of photographs and memories of your family connections with this church, please contact Canon Montjean or ring 07743235046.
