Mass in Honour of Blessed Thomas Thwing, Carlton Towers
Mass at Carlton Towers
Thomas Thwing is listed as one of the priests who served the area currently served by St. Mary’s Church (Carlton & Selby), and since 2012 the present Parish Priest, Fr Wilson, has ensured that the Blessed Thomas is remembered with Mass each year around the time of his Feast Day: 23rd October.
This year, it was suggested that Carlton Towers – owing to its Catholic connections dating back to the 14th century – should host a special Mass celebrated by Bishop Marcus Stock (Bishop of Leeds). The Towers no longer has its own chapel so Friday’s Mass was celebrated in the Venetian Drawing Room – with so many people attending, many more rows of chairs were extended into the entrance hall.
A group of children and staff from the Parish Primary School (St Mary’s, Selby) and from St. Wilfrid’s School, York, together with a larger group from Holy Family High School, Carlton were in attendance, together with parishioners from across the Deanery and beyond.
