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.
Pictured are Larry Keegan, Margaret Dolahenty & Bill Spicer with the Centenary Book, 100 Years and Counting. Margaret wrote the book and was ably assisted by Larry and Bill.
