Sacred Heart Church, Quex Road is appealing for couples who have got married there to supply wedding photos of their day to be used in a display to mark the church’s 150th year, part of the year-long series of celebrations.
Parishioner Ronan Lavery, who married in the church himself last year, says: “We are hoping to reconnect with couples who got married in the Church down through the years. We would love to be able to reach out to your readers in some way in order to get copies of photos of anybody’s special day for inclusion in a display in the church, and to invite people to a celebration of marriage through the years in the church.”
The special celebration will take place on Sunday 12th July, at 12:30pm. Couples can renew their wedding vows, and are invited to attend a reception in the Mazenod hall afterwards.
The poster for the event says: “You are cordially invited to join us as we remember and celebrate the thousands of weddings that have taken place here over the years. We will take a look back at many of the weddings that took place here, and offer an opportunity for married couples to renew their wedding vows.
“We welcome and will pray for those whose marriages may have ended, through bereavement or separation. We will celebrate and encourage those whose vocation is to the religious or single life.
“All are welcome to this joyous celebration, where we hope to have many couples who were married in this church, or who live locally and come here to worship.”
Anyone who has photographs of weddings at Sacred Heart Church, Quex Road should contact the parish office on 0207 624 1701.
