Family Mass - March 2016

On Thursday 17th March at 7.00pm over 140 people came together for our termly family Mass. Because Mass was in Lent, when we traditionally think about fasting, praying and alms giving, the theme for the Mass was ‘giving’.  A number of students were nominated by their form tutors as being really active in supporting charity work in school.  These students and their families were invited to the Mass to thank them for all they do and 40 students and their families accepted the invitation to attend.

At the start of Mass there was a student procession of the logos of the charities that we are raising money for during this Lent and they were placed on a display. Other students did the readings, bidding prayers, offertory procession and sang in the choir. During Mass Fr. Emmanuel spoke about the triple celebration of the day: Celebrating the students’ and their families’ generosity; recognising the successful Year 8 retreat, which had taken place earlier the same day and, of course, St Patrick’s day.

Following Mass, Miss Madden said that seeing the names of all the charities we are raising money for in school made the work the charities do seem very real and encouraged all the students to continue to work hard to help them.

At the end of the evening, students were given a bag of chocolates in recognition of all the fundraising work they do.

To all the students and staff who freely give their time and make a real contribution to helping support our charities collections - THANK YOU.
