Norwich church celebrates 75th anniversary
A grand ceremony has been held to mark the 75th anniversary of St Catherine’s Church in Mile Cross, one of the most historic churches in Norwich.
St Catherine’s held its first service on November 12, 1936, and marked this anniversary with the choir of Fitzwilliam College at Evensong on November 12.
The Grade II listed church’s big claim to fame was that its foundation stone was laid by a very special guest, Queen Mary on Thursday, February 2, 1935.
On Saturday, the Lord Mayor of Norwich Jenny Lay was among the special guests to join Rev Paul Mackay and a crowd of about 170 people to mark 75 years since the first service.
