Advent Youth Service
On 22nd December, pupils, parents and staff gathered in the school hall and chapel to take part in our Advent Service. Before the service started everyone gathered to enjoy refreshments, Christmas quizzes, music and enjoy some festive fun!
The service was a combination of traditional carols, scripture readings, reflections and prayers. Musical contributions from our talented musicians and singers, as well as our readers, all added up to a joyous, relaxed and prayerful evening, as we wait expectantly in preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas.
The service was led by our local parish priests, Father Paul Seddon and Father Paul Grady, both offering inspiring words on how we can prepare for the coming of Christ on 25th December.
Pupils and staff commented that they felt more ready for the joy of Christmas after attending the service and it was really lovely to see so many people turn out in the cold on a dark December evening to celebrate this very important date on the liturgical calendar.
The RE Department would like to thank our fantastic pupils, especially our RE ambassadors and prefects who contributed in so many ways to a lovely evening. We wish you all a very merry and peaceful Christmas.
