On September 11 St. Andrew the Apostle church, London Ontario, Canada, celebrated the Golden Jubilee of the Parish. St. Andrew the Apostle church was established in 1966. Through the generosity of Joseph Fallon who donated the land in memory of his deceased wife Alice Fallon, we are grateful to have St. Andrew’s Church to worship in. The parish was named St. Andrew the Apostle in recognition of many years of service to the Diocese by Monsignor Andrew P. Mahoney as the rector of St. Peter’s seminary and Vicar General of the Diocese. Before the mass, there was a small power point presentation on all the priests who served the parish.
