Golden Jubilee of St. Andrew the Apostle Parish, London Ontario, Canada
The Diocese of London on June 15, 1965 officially erected a new parish under the patronage of St. Andrew the Apostle. The name of the parish was assigned by Bishop Carter in recognition of the distinguished service of Monsignor Andrew P. Mahoney, Vicar General of the Diocese at that time. The new church was in fact founded on the charismatic personality of Rev. Fr. John McMaster, who was its first pastor until he died on May 13, 1973.

St. Andrews Church is on the Fallons Lane. This name is given to this street in honour of the donor of the land, Joseph Fallon in memory of his wife Alice Fallon, a native of Mount Carmel, Ontario. The New Church Building of St. Andrew the Apostle was blessed by Bishop Carter on June 1966.

This year (2016) St. Andrew the Apostle parish completes 50 years of its witnessing Christ and His Kingdom. As a part of celebrating the golden jubilee, St. Andrew’s church has organized various activities for the whole year. One of the main events was the parish jubilee dinner held on the 17th of June 2016. It was houseful. Bishop Ronald Fabrro, bishop of the diocese of London Bishop John Sherlock, Bishop emeritus diocese of London, Fr. Ranjan, Fr. Jaison, Fr. Alfredo and many other priests associated with St. Andrew’s were present. As a whole it was a wonderful evening of Golden Jubilee Celebration
