Pupils from St Marie’s School, Sheffield, went out into the parishes where they celebrate their Sunday Mass to join in more fully with the celebrations of the wider parish communities.

  The children have visited St Vincent’s, St William of York and St Francis of Assisi.  The pupils prepared different parts of the Mass, the readings, the bidding prayers and the offertory.

  Mrs Twomey, the Religious Education Co-ordinator, led the children in their singing, which included hymns that the children sing in school.

  Mrs Twomey also helped the children to prepare the Masses.  She said, “It was lovely to see the school and the parish communities coming together in such a special way.”

  Thanks go to all the priests and members of the parish communities who supported this work.
