Year 5 and 6 Class Mass, by Mr Lavin

Date: 13th Feb 2015 @ 12:53pm

On Friday 13th February, Year 5 and 6 children celebrated their class mass.

The children prepared the readings, choose the hymns and participated in each part of the mass.

If was the first time that children sang the new mass - this was met by great appreciation by Father Chris.

The comments the children received after mass were outstanding! Many asked if the children could come each day! 

It was great to see so many smiling faces around the school and I know Mrs Bramhall and Father Chris were very proud and pleased with the children.

Feel free to have a look at the Mass Booklet below.
