St. Philip Neri Catholic Church, Smethwick - 125th anniversary - memories wanted!


The Parish of St. Philip Neri, 
M
essenger Road, Smethwick, B66 3DU

celebrates its 125th anniversary in 2018.


For the 125th Anniversary of the Parish, 

Mass is at 12:00 noon on 10th June

followed by a celebrated lunch and display of 

Parish historical photos and archives.

We will be using some of these memories to create a display and commemorative booklet in preparation for a celebration mass on Sunday 10th June at 12 noon. The mass will be celebrated by Archbishop Bernard Longley and we hope that as many past parishioners, pupils and staff from the school as well as people who were baptised or married at the church will attend to share in the celebrations.


The Catholic network being as strong as it is, we kindly ask that people pass on this message to anyone they know who may have past connections with the church. If you have never been to this beautiful church which has string connections with Blessed (Cardinal) John Henry Newman and the hymn writer Edward Caswall, you are also warmly invited to the coffee afternoon on 17th March as well as the celebration mass on 10th June.
