Diocesan Schools' Mass 2019
On Friday 11th October, members of our Ethos Team attended the Annual Diocesan Schools' Mass at St Mary's Church in Dunstable. We were greeted by Fr Tony from St Mary's and the Mass was celebrated by Bishop Peter, Mgr. McGinnell and clergy from all over the Diocese.
Fr Wayne from Missio was presented with a cheque for over £11,900 from the 53 Northampton Diocesan Schools present at the Mass. The donation was raised in accordance with Pope Francis' wishes for us all to act and observe October as an Extraordinary Month of Mission. In early October, all four schools in the St Thomas of Canterbury Catholic Academies Trust each marched a mile for Missio and asked for your donations in return. We're very pleased to have been able to contribute towards this fantastic donation total, thank you all for your generosity.
After Mass the pupils and staff were welcomed in to the Parish Rooms, by St Mary's parishioners, where they ate their lunch with other schools from the Diocese.
The pupils were exemplary ambassadors for the school.
