War Memorial Calvary

On a brilliantly sunny October day the figure of Christ returned to the War Memorial Calvary, newly gilded, restored to its original appearance. Hoisting the cast-iron corpus onto the wooden cross was a nerve-wracking exercise for all concerned, and a gilder was on hand to touch up any damage caused by the operation. Restoration of the Calvary has been supported by the War Memorials Trust and a generous private donor, and we are delighted that work will be finished in time for the centenary of the end of the First World War. 

The parish Act of Remembrance will take place at the Calvary at the end of Mass on Sunday 11th November, and the Calvary will be re-dedicated at 10.45 on Monday 12th, with children from St Mary Magdalene’s School taking part.
