GOLDEN JUBILEE, OF LEWISHAM PARISH

On Sunday last the Catholics of St. Saviour's, Lewisham, observed the Golden Jubilee of the Foundation of the parish, the Very Rev. Canon J. B. Ward sang High Mass.

The special preacher, Fr. Kevin, 0.F.M.Cap., reviewing the history of the preStill church, said there was a parish of Lewisham as far back as the tenth century, stretching away to the Norwood Hills dedicated to the Mother ot God. The present church had been beautified and extended, with a glorious campanile, by Canon Ward. It was named St. Saviour's, after the Lateran Basilica and probably to honour Reginald Cardinal Pole, who lies buried in the Cathedral of St. Saviour, Canterbury.
