ON OCTOBER 29, St Joseph's Church. Aberavon, Port Talbot. Wales which was opened in 1931 attained its Golden Jubilee.
I am a native of this Parish, TOW residing elsewhere. and I am about to begin research for a detailed history of St Joseph's from 1849 to date. This work is being sponsored officially at clerical level.
Present parishioners and former parishioners residing elsewhere can greatly assist by sending me old photographs, anecdotes, memories of parish events and school life, etc. • The valuable source booklet published for the Consecration and Centenary Celebrations in 1952 would be much appreciated on loan. Similarly Cardiff Archdiocesan Year Books for 1930. 1931. 1937 and 1953.
Finally, if anyone could put me in touch with the nearest relatives of former parish priests I would be grateful.
