Thank you very much indeed. Most interesting. If I may, do you happen to know the difference between the Dedication Feast of a Church and those of its Patron or Titular? My copy of the ''Catholic Dictionary'' by Addis and Arnold is presently holding up a small shrine -- a lace cloth, some candles and my dear late aunt's statue of Our Lady of Lourdes -- and I don't want to take it down.

The feast of the Dedication of a church is the anniversary of its consecration. The feast of its Title is the Divine Person, Mystery or Saint in whose honour the church was built and honoured in the church's dedication ceremony or solemn blessing. (A church which is solemnly blessed has a feast of Title but not of Dedication). The Patron is of the place e.g. diocese (as in the example of the Suffrages in Ttony's post), country, city, town etc.

All three feasts were observed with Octaves in the good old days.
