Year of Consecrated Life Celebration

28 November 2014

The whole school came together on Friday 28th November 2014 to commemorate the start of the Year of Consecrated Life with a beautiful Mass led by our Year 6 classes. We invited members from local religious communities to come and join us for this celebration.

The children explained what Consecrated Life means during the Introduction to our Mass.

'Wake the World' a hymn specially commissioned for this special year was sung by some members of the school choir as a Responsorial Psalm.

During the homily Father John, Simon, a seminarian from Oscott College and Sister Susan told us about their vocation, and how they knew that God was calling them to dedicate their lives to Him.

Following the Mass some of the children met the sisters and were able to ask them if they would share their story with us, building links during this special year.
