Attendance was around 250 last year, we are hoping to break the 300 barrier this year..

WHERE and WHEN?

This celebration has outgrown all our Catholic churches.

It is to be held St Joseph’s Catholic School, Laverstock at 19:00 Friday 18 October 2019.

We are very grateful to St Joseph's School for providing the venue, help in the planning and set up on the night.

From the Planning Meetting it was established:

Stewarding and Welcoming will be looked after by the Salisbury Cateninans.

Food and Drink will be co-ordinated by 4 wonderful ladies led by Josephine

We ask that as many of you as possible bring your national dish to share at the supper that follows the Mass. No NUTs or NUT extracts please. Dishes should be cooked through and warm to go in warming cupboards, and a label saying what it is and its key ingredients.
