Invitation to blessing of Church

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.
