St Jude's Day: 28 October 2010 Lady Chapel

Thursday 28 October marks the centenary of the opening of the Church for worship and of the Dedication of the Lady Chapel on St Jude's Day 1910.

We come together for a special Parish Eucharist at 8pm when the preacher will be The Rev'd Gwyn Clement, Rector of our mother church St Mary at Hendon and Area Dean of West Barnet.
