A Mass of Thanksgiving to mark the 90th anniversary of Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Wanstead will be celebrated by Alan Williams, Bishop of Brentwood, on 19 July from 7.30pm.

"During the Mass, Gary Dench, a young seminarian, will be ordained to the diaconate by the Bishop," said a church spokesperson.

The first parish priest, Father Basil Booker, was appointed in August 1919 and purchased a market garden on Cambridge Park on which to build a church, which opened in October 1928.
