On the feast day of the Triumph of the Cross, Archbishop Leo Cushley led our Eucharistic celebration to mark the blessing of the new St John’s RC school building. Led by our wonderful musicians and readers; children, staff, parents, former pupils and invited guests participated fully in the beautiful liturgy which was a wonderful way to dedicate our school to the spreading of the Gospel.
Children from Primary 1 to Primary 7 were involved in reading during the liturgy and nursery pupils joined us as part of the offertory procession.
After Mass, Archbishop Cushley, accompanied by Father Jock and Ms Service, visited each classroom and blessed the children and the rooms. Guests were invited to stay for tea and coffee and enjoyed the opportunity to tour our fantastic new facilities.
Ms Service and the SLT were delighted that Archbishop Cushley celebrated the Eucharist with us on this most significant day in the life of our new school.
