College Celebrates Whole School Eucharist
The College community gathered in the Sports Hall on Thursday 7 September to celebrate a Eucharist to mark the start of the academic year.
Led by Father Alan Whelan MSC, pupils and staff were introduced to the new Chaplaincy school theme for the year of ‘Resilience’.
The service began with the school singing the College hymn, Here I Am Lord. Then Father Alan spoke to pupils explaining how important resilience is and how we all need the ability to withstand adversity and to bounce back from difficulties. Pupils considered how they could be resilient, recording their individual thoughts on a card.
Together as a community, pupils and staff prayed for the school, for our families and for all those in the world who need our hopes. During the service pupils and staff received the sacrament or a blessing. It was wonderful to come together as a community at the start of the school year and to have the opportunity to reflect and pray.
Our thanks go to Father Alan for leading us in the service.
