Our Chaplaincy Team
Every week our wonderful Chaplaincy team lead liturgies in all the classes. They do an amazing job giving up their own time to prepare them.
Today four of our chaplains attended a "Growing in faith together" celebration day. They went to St Mary's church, Bamber bridge with chaplains from around the diocese. They created a banner to show the work they have been doing in school and went along to share ideas and celebrate their achievements. They had a mass with Bishop John and then attended a variety of workshops to gain new ideas. They even had time to take part in some races and challenges.
Every Friday morning throughout Lent we will be holding Lenten liturgies at 8:30am in the yr3/4 classroom. Please join us at this important time of year.
On Friday our Mini-Vinnies held a toy sale to raise money for the poor at Christmas. All the children in the school helped by providing unwanted toys and then they came to the sale in the afternoon to buy the toys.
Thank-you everyone for your support and help. We raised £200!
Operation Christmas Child
Our Mini-Vinnies have been helping to organise shoe boxes to go to overseas children who will not receive any gifts at Christmas.
This is our first year supporting "Samaritan;s Purse" and we have collected 44 boxes. thank-you to all the children who donated presents!
The boxes have now been collected and are off to be delivered for Christmas!
Every Friday playtime our Mini-Vinnies sell toast to the rest of the school to raise money for good causes.
As a school we decided to support Cornerstones who help the homeless in Manchester. The Mini-Vinnies asked the children to donate toiletries, chocolates and gloves and socks as gifts for the homeless for Christmas. We had an amazing response and two of our Mini-Vinnies took the gifts to Cornerstones and were given a tour of the building. They learned all about the wonderful work they do and what a difference our donations would make.
Thank-you everyone for your support!
Our Mini-Vinnies supported the SVP and gave up their evening to make hampers for the needy at Christmas.
