Altar Pieces

In the days before Vatican 2 when the priest faced the altar at Mass, the altar bore six large silver plated candlesticks. These were the gift of Father Phillips’s mother. Now that the priest says Mass facing the people there is no opportunity for their use as before. Mrs. Harris, mother of Father John Harris, in the early years of St. Gregory’s gave the two silver-plated candlesticks currently used on the altar. They were made by Knight’s of Wellingborough. In 1983 her son John became our Parish Priest.
