On Tuesday 14 May, a Mass was celebrated at St. Joseph's Catholic College to commemorate sixty years of secondary Catholic education in Swindon.
Bishop Declan Lang came from Bristol to lead the celebration with the current Chair of Governors of St. Joseph’s, Canon John Cunningham. Monsignor Richard Twomey, the former Chair of Governors and Father Richard, from Holy Rood Parish, was also present to lead the celebration.
The Mayor of Swindon and Directors of Education from both Swindon and Clifton Diocese also attended. Many former staff and governors attended the Mass and the college singers were in splendid voice.
The Executive Principal, Mr Hughes, spoke about the importance of remembering the contribution made by so many over the years to Catholic education in the town. He also remarked on how proud he was of all the staff and students who had contributed to the celebration on the evening.
Thank you to all those who attended, we hope you had a great evening.
