Bishop Davies visits SS Peter & Paul, New Brighton

On Sunday 2nd Bishop Davies made a pastoral visit to the shrine church of SS Peter & Paul and St Philomena, in New Brighton. I hadn't realised how in the 1962 books when a bishop visits a parish, formally, there are special ceremonies and blessings, notably for the deceased of the parish.
I wasn't present myself at this ceremony, but it is good to see a bishop taking seriously his paternal concern for his parishes.
There are a couple more photos here.
