Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.
Father Kevin is Father John’s right hand man. He comes into school every Friday, he helps in the classes and he teaches the children choruses and songs. We love having him in school.
Outdoor Prayer Area
We were very pleased this week (2nd February) to have Bishop John Arnold into school. He held a special Mass for us and blessed our prayer garden. We have spent a lot of time deeloping this special place and to have Bishop John bless it for us was a very wondrous occasion.
As ever our Harvest Mass was wonderful and we were once again thrilled to receive so many donations. All the items went to the Maundy Grange in Accrington.
Last Saturday (1st October) Mrs Robinson and Miss Halstead went with Lucy, a Parishioner and Father Kevin to the Marian Procession in Manchester. It is an act of witness to our faith. We parade with a beautiful statue of Mary through the streets singing and praying and honouring Mary and all she means to us.
Here are some photos from that.
Our pupil chaplains work alongside our Parish Priests to assist in the growth of the church within our school. We are enormously proud of all they do.
At St Mary’s we attend Mass regularly. Some services are for the whole school whilst others are for single classes only. Please click on the form for a full overview of Mass for the coming year.
Each year our Year 3 children follow the Sac Prog as part of their development within the Catholic Faith (older children who have not taken the Sacramental Programme can also join – please ask). The dates for this year’s programme will be published soon.
At St Mary’s we are pleased to work closely with our sister schools, St Michael and St John’s (Clitheroe) and Thorneyholme. As part of our work together we produce a termly newsletter.
