The Blessed Sacrament in school

On Tuesday 4th February it was the turn of our Parish to take part in Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and pray for Vocations.

Fr Louis brought the Blessed Sacrament and Monstrance into school so that during the day the children from every class could part in Adoration and be with Jesus.

We then gathered together at the end of the day, once again with Fr Louis, to pray and sing together before Father returned the Blessed Sacrament to Church.

It was a very special day in school, full of faith and prayer.
