Over two hundred pupils from twenty-eight of our Diocesan schools attended the Good Shepherd Celebration. This was held at Mother of God Church, Sheffield.

Bishop Ralph received generous cheques which had been raised by the many fund raising efforts which took place during Lent. All the money goes towards Hallam Caring Services projects for families.  Stuart Hanlon, Co-ordinator, expressed sincere thanks to all concerned in this annual appeal, which contributes in no small way to the maintenance and development of these essential services.  A moving reflection on the virtue of helping our neighbour at a time of need was presented by the children from St Wilfrid’s Primary School, Sheffield.

As usual vast amounts of soft drinks and biscuits were enjoyed in the Parish Centre.

Sincere thanks to all those who made it such a happy occasion.
