St Theresa’s Solem opening of the church took place on the 6th July 1960.
A Parishioner of St Theresa’s has very kindly passed on a very delicate copy of a Souvenir issued at the time.
Entitled ‘Souvenir of the Solemn Opening of St. Theresa’s New Church Sheffield, July 1960 and in Commemoration of the Feast Day of St. Theresa 3rd October, 1960’, it makes fascinating reading.
The document covers an introduction of the then Bishop of Leeds, George Patrick of the approach by Father McGillicuddy to build the Church. The brochure highlights in detail the history of St. Theresa, the Church of St. Theresa, including photos, a list of Contributors to the Furnishing of the New Church and advertisement of various supporting businesses.
Unfortunately the size of the scanned Souvenir is too big to upload on this website. Please contact the Parish Office if of interest.
