Our Church is dedicated to St Cecilia, the 3rd century martyr listed in the Roman Canon.   For Dom Guéranger, St Cecilia summed up ancient Christian Rome and that age’s witness to the faith.  She was for him virgin, martyr, apostle, and a model of a life lived at the heart of the Church.  Each year on the Anniversary of the Dedication of the Church, 12 October, candles are lit around the nave and sanctuary.
