Leeds Catenians Honour a Long-Serving Member

Catenians and their guests from throughout Province 3 North gathered at Hinsley Hall in Leeds before Christmas to celebrate the forty years of membership of City of Leeds Circle member, Peter Kennedy, a parishioner at St Joseph’s, Wetherby.

The presentation of his scroll and miniature by Province 3 Director Tony Deighton, came during the Circle meeting, which followed Mass in the chapel of Hinsley Hall, celebrated by Fr Anthony Rosso of St Joseph’s parish, Bradford. The Circle meeting and Mass were then followed by a celebratory meal in the dining room at Hinsley Hall.
