Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

Year 6 adoring the Blessed Sacrament

Following Mass on Tuesday 5th February Father Louis placed the Blessed Sacrament into the Monstrance for us to adore during the day.

Today is a special day of prayer for our Parish, where we are called to pray for Vocations and the call to consecrated life.

Throughout the day the children from all classes (Nursery to Year 6) spent time in the hall where they had time to pray silently and together in front of the Blessed Sacrament.

It was a special day in school, one of peace, prayer and adoration.
