Pope’s Blessing on Golden Wedding.
Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Lyons, of Carroll street, North Melbourne, who celebrated their golden wedding anniversary yesterday, received a special blessing from the Pope.
They were told of the Pope’s blessing by the Apostolic Dele
gate (Archbishop Marella).
For the anniversary, seven of their’ eight children and
their 23 grandchildren came together.
The one absentee was a son, Father Denis Lyons, of St. Columban’s Mission, Ireland.
Mr. and Mrs. Lyons attended a Mass of thanksgiving with
their children and grandchildren at St. Mary’s Star of the
Sea Church, West Melbourne.
They, were married in the church soon after it opened in
1900.
At Mass Archbishop Mannix attended the Mass, which was celebrated by the couple’s son, Bishop Lyons, who is auxiliary bishop to Cardinal Gilroy. He came from Sydney for the ceremony.
The altar boys were two of Mr. and Mrs. Lyons’s grand
sons.
Mr. Lyons, now 75, was, until his retirement In 1941, a member of the City Council staff. His wife is aged 73.
Among the many congratulatory telegrams they received yesterday, they were most proud of those from Cardinal
Gilroy and Bishop Liston, of Auckland, New Zealand.
A quiet: family celebration was held at their home last night, but the couple said the Mass was really the only way they had wished to observe the day.
