Bamenda & Portsmouth Ruby Celebration
St John Bosco was honoured to host one of the 40th Anniversary Celebrations to mark the twinning of the diocese of Portsmouth and Bamenda in 1974. We welcomed the 31 strong delegation from the Cameroon lead by Archbishop Cornelius who had spent the week in the UK visiting schools and parishes across the diocese. A special Mass was celebrated in the afternoon of 22nd June and the church was filled with parishioners from across the Reading Pastoral Area joined by Cameroonians and other African nations clothed in multi-coloured national dress. Never before has our church seen such a colourful and joyful celebration. The Mass lead by Archbishop Cornelius was concelebrated by 15 other priests with Fr Bon leading the specially assembled choir.
