15. Celebration

Passion Sunday 1995

Passion Sunday, April 9th 1995 dawned into a bright Spring morning. The liturgy began in the hall of the old Social Centre where Sunday Mass had been celebrated for the past year. The palm-bearing procession then walked out of the old building, along Flower Lane and then along the Broadway and into the new church.
