EARLIER this month the mayor of Winchester visited St Peter’s RC Church.

Cllr Eleanor Bell, along with her escort, husband Alex, were welcomed by the congregation on November 3 as she attended the regular Mass.

She was welcomed by the church based in Jewry Street and by the Parish Priest, Fr Mark Hogan.

There was a small reception after the service, in the St Peter’s Pastoral Centre.

And during her time at the church she was informed about their activities and met with Mike Gretton, the chair of the Parish’s Evangelisation Strategy Group.
