Happy Birthday Michel

We extend warm birthday greetings to the Michel, whose 350th Birthday is being celebrated. A younger church than St Thomas Becket – we will be celebrating 400 years in 2012 – but a good age nevertheless.

Dedicated on March 14, 1661, the Michel was named after the archangel Michael. It took some battering at the end of WWII, but now is fully restored and attracts over a million visitors each year.
