A Jesuit community in Boscombe, Bournemouth, England is celebrating an extraordinary milestone this month: a total of 450 years of service to the church by priests and brothers in the community. The parish of Corpus Christi had originally originally intended to mark the 50thanniversary of their Parish Priest, Jesuit Father Denis Blackledge, becoming a Jesuit, but expanded to include all of the anniversaries of the Jesuit priests and brothers in Bournemouth. Fr. Blackledge, spoke with Vatican Radio, looking back on his and his confreres’ years of service to the Church.
