125th Anniversary Mass

The Celtic Graves Society with the support of Celtic Football Club are delighted to announce that there will be a service to mark our Foundation at St Mary’s, Calton on 6th November 2012.

This service is exactly 125 years after the first meeting at St Mary’s Hall in 1887. The Service will commence at 5.30pm.

“A football club will be formed for the maintenance of dinner tables for the children and the unemployed.”

After the service attendees will be invited back to Celtic Park for a simple meal, to reflect the work of the poor children’s dinner table.

Attendance will be ticketed, and all of those attending the St Mary’s celebration are invited along to the function suite at Celtic Park. We are asking for a donation suggested at £10, with the proceeds being given to charity, reflecting the core principles of the founding fathers on that day, and those of the present day club through the work of the Celtic Charity Fund.

We hope to release more information on how to obtain tickets in the very near future.
