Heritage Event at St Marie’s: “Notices & Minutes – Hidden Gems”

Saturday 4th May 2.00PM – 4.00PM
St Marie’s, Lugsdale Road, Widnes.

The St Marie’s Heritage Group are pleased to announce that, by popular demand, we will be making available the St Marie’s Parish “Notice Books” once again for inspection and discussion. In the days of the Latin Mass, the notices were read out to the congregation at the end of Mass – the only “English” language used! These notice books are in effect the modern equivalent of a parish newsletter.

In addition, for the first time ever, we will be presenting extracts from the St. Marie’s School Board of Governors Minutes Book – a rich source of the history of all three schools – Infant, Girls and Boys Schools. As with the Notice Books, there are many hidden gems that will educate, entertain and amuse you.

18 05 12 RogerRoger Harrison, one of the St Marie’s Heritage Group volunteers will lead you and guide you through some of the more interesting parts of the Minutes Book.

This should be a very interesting two hours with once again, all present adding their own tales to the materials on view.

Places are limited for this special event and must be reserved in advance of the event. To reserve your free place please contact Matthew Roberts via mroberts@haltonsthelensvca.org.uk or (01928) 592 405.
