Thetford Catholics join Remembrance Day event

On Sunday November 12, St Mary’s Catholic Church in Thetford joined with other community groups and civil dignitaries to mark Remembrance Day.


Roger Hall, a parishioner of St Mary’s, was selected to lay a specially commissioned yellow and white wreath from the Royal British Legion on behalf of the parish community. 

Paul Gilbert, Chairman of the parish council, said: “The wreath has two-fold meaning, yellow and white for the Vatican colours but also in remembrance, white is for peace and yellow symbolises reconciliation between all nations. 

As soon as the 10am Mass was over, parish priest Fr Pat Cleary (pictured above), joined with other parishioners gathered to mark the act of remembrance. It was a great event to be involved with and one that has become a tradition for St Mary’s.”
