St James' Parish Church Muswellbrook Centenary

Centenary celebrations were held over the weekend for St James’ Parish Church in Muswellbrook.

St James' Parish Church Muswellbrook Centenary

The celebrations kicked off last Thursday evening with a Christmas Pageant at St Joseph's High School, Aberdeen. The following day the students of St James' Primary School re-enacted many of the important events of the parish over the last century.

On Saturday a Vigil Mass, including the children's choir, was held at St James' Church followed by an outdoor movie night and barbecue. Finally, on Sunday, with Bishop Bill presiding, a parish Mass and consecration of the Church was a fitting ending to a wonderful occasion. A Centenary book was launched after Mass and the community was able to enjoy a piece of the Centenary cake and the wonderfully presented memorabilia display.
