Regina Coeli Catholic Church in Brentwood was filled to overflowing as the community celebrated the little church’s 50th anniversary in mid- December. With a congregation of over 140 people, Bishop Donald Sproxton concelebrated the Golden Jubilee Mass with seven priests who had served the Parish over its 50 years. Many of those in attendance were past parishioners.

Prior to the Mass John Trainor, a current parishioner, spoke of what the church has meant to so many people over its years and he shared his memories of attending church in his youth including the memory of attending there because the then priest said the Mass in pretty quick time‚ also because it was 7pm Mass, one of the last Sunday Masses available each Sunday.
