The John Paul Centre - Middlesbrough...

The Middlesbrough community made sure the devotion to Our Mother of Perpetual Help was nourished this year by their novena, led by Fr Brendan O'Rourke C.Ss.R., a Redemptorist preacher from Ireland.

Look closer and you'll see the face of Blessed John Paul II!

 

The centre marked the Beatification with a mass of thanksgiving on the 13th of May,

as this was the anniversary of John Paul's assassination attempt, and also the feast of Our Lady of Fatima.

Everyone received a commemorative card to remember the day by.

 

After the mass, the celebrations continued with a glass of wine and a cake!
