The Liturgical Year
The Feast of the Ascension
Our Chaplaincy Team attended Mass at SS Alban and Stephen Church and represented the school brilliantly. They read well and were respectful throughout. They responded thoughtfully to Father Andrew's questions during the homily too.
Father Michael led our Reconciliation service for pupils in Years 1, 2, 3 and Reception. We shared prayers, reading and reflections on the theme of forgiveness. Pupils in Years 4, 5 and 6 took part in class services led by Father Michael and Father Andrew, in which they had the opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation or a blessing.
Pupils from our Chaplaincy Team led Lent prayers for parents in the hall at 8.30am during the last week of term. This proved to be a very peaceful way to start the day and to take time to reflect on the season of Lent.
Father Michael joined us on Ash Wednesday to lead our service for pupils and families. One parent commented:
“It was a pleasure to attend the Ash Wednesday service at school to hear how the children were preparing for Lent. They all engaged so well with Fr Michael and committed to their Lenten promises. As a parent, it was a wonderful opportunity to reflect on my own spiritual journey as Lent begins, and as always, the children sang beautifully!”
