Pugin Anniversary Mass

The 150th anniversary of St. Patrick's Catholic Church, Colebrook (Tasmania), will be celebrated on Sunday, January 21st, 2007 with Mass, followed by lunch and Benediction.

This will be one of the first opportunities to view the newly-restored rood screen. Archbishop Adrian Doyle will preside, assisted by Bishop Geoffrey Jarrett and Father Terry Rush.

The Mass is open to the public and is an important milestone in the restoration of this historic church. To read more about the church’s ongoing restoration, see the Pugin Foundation website:
