Harvest Mass

8 October 2014

"Celebrate the harvest festival to honour the Lord your God, be joyful in the Lord's presence."
Deuteronomy 16:10-11

Year 5 led our annual Harvest Mass on Wednesday, 8th October 2014.

At the start of the Mass, Father John blessed the wonderful Gardens of Eden that Year 5 had made during their RE Inspire Workshop held earlier in the term. We were very pleased that the children's parents could join them for this special blessing.

Families were very generous in their donations of food for the homeless people of our city. Kitty O'Reilly collected the Harvest Gifts at the end of Mass and thanked everyone for their generosity.
