150th Anniversary Mass

September 18th 2017

Join us for a parish celebration of the 150th Anniversary of St Dominic’s Priory and parish! On 7th October 2017, the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, we will mark 150 years since the Dominicans opened their Priory in Haverstock Hill in October 1867 and the first Masses were said on this site. The Archbishop of Liverpool, Malcolm McMahon OP, who grew up in St Dominic’s parish, will celebrate the Mass, and we will be joined by Dominicans and past parish priests of St Dominic’s. This will be a wonderful celebration for all who have known and loved St Dominic’s for generations, and also a worthy way to mark our first year as London’s Rosary Shrine.

We hope that friends of St Dominic’s, both old and new, will join us for this festive occasion. The 150th Anniversary Mass on 7th October 2017 will begin at 12 noon.¬†All are very welcome. Please note that there will be no 10am Mass and devotions that morning.

The photo here shows the temporary St Dominic’s church used in 1867, in the area above what is now Blackfriars Hall, before the present grand church was completed in 1883.
