We have now received photographs of the completed church of St Peter Claver, consecrated at Mass by the Bishop of Bo last week.

The building is now truly beautiful with a stunning front elevation in blue mosaic.  We in our own parish can share in the satisfaction and happiness that the people in the parish feel of a project so well done.

Invitation to blessing of Church

 

Bishop Charles

An email received by the Parish Priest at St Peter Claver, at the  end of October and regarding progress at the church, reads:

“Work in progress at St Peter church: concreting of floor and plastering of office, and electrification of church. On behalf of the Bishop and parishioners I would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to you, your Bishop and parishioners. May God continue to bless you all. The church will be officially dedicated and raised to a Quasi Parish on the 15th December, 2017.

Please inform your parishioners and Leota Charles. Your presence at this ceremony is very much significant. An official invitation will be sent to you and your parishioners later.
