Jubilee celebrated with music

August 2014

St Brigid’s Church in Feilding is celebrating its 125th Jubilee over 2014/15 with a number of events.

A concert by Fr Chris Skinner drew a packed audience to St Brigid’s on Saturday 10 May. Fr Chris, a Marist priest, is a renowned singer and songwriter who has produced several albums and has performed nationally and internationally.

His songs connect to liturgy as well as quiet reflection that touch our spirits. It was a privilege to have Fr Chris with his beautiful mellow voice, sense of humour and warm personality come to our parish and it was a pleasure to host folk from other parishes and denominations too.
