The St Liborius community will gather for the celebration.

A MAJOR milestone will be celebrated this weekend at St Liborius Church inEaglehawk.

The church turns 150 this year, with the occasion to be marked on Sunday.

Students at St Liborius Primary School dressed up in the spirit of the event yesterday with a morning of activities enjoyed in period costumes.

The church itself, located within the school grounds, is one of the oldest buildings in Eaglehawk and one of the oldest churches in the Diocese of Sandhurst.

A special mass will be held from 10.30am on Sunday, with Sandhurst Bishop Leslie Tomlinson to lead the celebrations.

The parish has assembled an organising committee for the event, headed up by Margaret Watson.

Ms Watson said a history book of the parish, written by Aylene Kirkwood OAM, will be launched at the luncheon following the mass.
