New Beginnings Mass 15th September

This morning Primary 3-7 attended St John’s church to celebrate the New Beginnings Mass. P7 led the Mass beautifully, readers were excellent and Mette served on the altar.

The message of the Mass reinforced by Fr Jock was Kindness, in the playground, in our classes, in our thoughts, words and actions.

Thank you to Frances for the music and the parish team for setting up for Mass. We also wish Fr Jock a restful and enjoyable holiday for the next few weeks.

St John the Evangelist feast Day Mass

Thank you to P3 for leading the school so beautifully in the Mass to celebrate our Patron Saint. They did exceptionally well with the readings, especially with having such limited practise time. Fr Jock was impressed of the knowledge of the children during his homily!

P6 also took part in the initiation ceremony for the Pope Francis Faith Award – this is offered to pupils in P6&7. Throughout the two year award, pupils learn about the Gifts and Fruits of the Holy Spirit and how they can use these gifts in daily life. The award aims to connect all aspects of our parish community: school, parish and home. We wish P6 every success in their Pope Francis Faith Award work.

New Beginnings Mass at St John’s Parish Church

Primary 3-7 joined parishoners at 1000 Mass this morning (Friday 30th September) for the New Beginnings Mass. This was the first time multiple year groups have worshipped together in church since January 2020.

P7 led the Mass beautifully, reading with confidence and being an excellent example to younger classes. Children from across the school sang hymns enthusiastically, and a big thank you to Miss Black for accompanying the singing on the piano.

As the term goes on we hope to have classes attending Mass on a regular basis, our next large school Mass is for All Saints Day on 1st November at St Mary Magdalene’s church and will be led by Primary 6.
