Good Shepherd’s Mass at St Chad’s Cathedral

On Tuesday 24th May I accompanied 5 students in Year 8 to St Chad’s Cathedral to attend the annual Good Shepherd Masses for Father Hudson’s Care. The Mass is a celebration and a thank you to the schools that have raised money for our Diocesan Charity, particularly through their Lenten ‘Good Shepherd Appeal’. The cathedral was full of young people representing Catholic schools in Birmingham. During the Offertory Procession, representatives from all the schools carried banners and their cheques to offer them to Archbishop Bernard Longley, who was celebrating the Mass. We were very proud to hand over a cheque for nearly £650 as our contribution to the appeal; this money was raised from our non-uniform day in the spring term. A big thank you goes to the five Year 8 students who attended the Mass with me; they were great ambassadors for our school.
