Date Published: April 4th, 2017
THE St Francis of Assisi Roman Catholic Church is still in need of urgent repairs and to facilitate the restoration of the church, the parish and the Belmont community have been undertaking several fund-raisers.
Another one such project, the Hosanna! concertfeaturing the Lydian Singers and Lydian Steel, will take place at Queen’s Hall, St Ann’s on Sunday from 6 pm.
The historical landmark ob Belmont Circular Road has been in the proud community for well over a century.
In 1902, the church was blessed and formally opened by Rev Fr Vincent Sutherland, OP. The church was built in a Romanesque style by Irish architects Ashlin and Coleman who are also responsible for the design of the archbishop’s residence on Queen’s Park West.
