"Respect your Father and Mother so that you may live in the land that I am going to give you." Exodus 12:20
Many children and their families joined members of our Parish Community to thank God for our Mothers. Father John celebrated Mass for us on the Feast of St Patrick.
The children lead the readings, sang the Responsorial Psalm and other children took part in the Introduction, bringing the gifts to the altar in the Offertory Procession, altar serving and supporting the singing.
After the Homily four children from one family were received into the Church by Father John and the fifth member of the same family was baptised at the end of Mass.
Before the Final Hymn all the children from our school came forward to sing our special song of thanks for Mothers, before receiving bunches of daffodils to present to their Mothers and other parishoners.
