On Friday 21 July, priests and laity from around the Diocese descended on St Joseph's Church, Barnoldswick to celebrate the Ruby Anniversary of Canon Kevin Firth.

 

Mass was celebrated, and Fr Dennis Cassidy preached a homily in a 'return match' for Fr Kevin having preached at his recent 25th Anniversary.  The celebration continued with a buffet dinner at the St Joseph's Community Centre.

 

The Diocese extends its warmest thanks to Canon Firth in recognition of his 40 years of service to the Church.
