For the first time this weekend the new book on St Mary’s Clapham will go on sale! To give us our formal title, the book is actually called … St Mary’s Clapham, The Church of Our Immaculate Lady of Victories and its Redemptorist Community.
The book was written and researched by one of our dear confreres from the Dublin Province, Fr Brendan McConvery CSsR. We owe him a debt of thanks! He has come up with some facts that even our most scholarly men did not know – eg, the Station of the Cross were given to the Community as a gift from ex King Umberto of Italy!
One of St Mary’s parishioners, the talented Jess Esposito, took the many splendid photographs that are throughout the whole book. To her also we owe a debt of thanks. As we most certainly do to Redemptorist Publications who worked so hard on this production.
There are letters of introduction from Archbishop Peter Smith and also from our own Fr General, Most Rev’d Michael Brehl CSsR.
There really is something for everyone in these attractive 86 pages – and that makes it a steal at only £5.00 per copy.
You can purchase your copy after each weekend mass or from the office reception.
