World theme for Catholic church golden jubilee

Have your say

St Mary’s Catholic Church in West Street, Dunstable, marked its golden jubilee with a world-themed service and picnic.

Diocesan Bishop, the Rt Rev Peter Doyle, celebrated a Mass to mark 50 years since the church – a local landmark known for its unusual round shape – was consecrated.

Bishop Peter joked that the day’s sunny weather was a welcome contrast to the snow blizzards braved by his predecessor on the day of the church’s consecration on March 15, 1964.
