Recently St Mary Immaculate parish in Falmouth celebrated 150 years since the church was built on the 24th August 1865.
The parishioners decided to put on a numerous displays highlighting the activities that have taken place over many years.
John Pinhay Stella Maris (Apostleship of the Sea) Falmouth Port Chaplain and his wife Pat who is a ship visitor put on a display highlighting the work of Stella Maris.
They discovered a leather case that belonged to a former Parish Priest, Canon Bede, who was a great supporter of Stella Maris and would say Mass on a regular basis whenever the need arose.
Sadly Canon Bede passed away in 2006, but to find his case with all the items required to say Mass on board ship was very moving.
John and Pat made sure that Canon Bede's case and contents took centre place on their display.
