The Passion

The Moving Stations of the Cross-Year 6

The Presentation of the Lord: 2 February 2022.

We celebrated Candlemas with Mass in St Mary's.

During Covid times in 2020-2022, Fr Andrew celebrated many outdoor Masses so that we kept the Mass as the central part of our school life. From September 2021, we resumed weekly Mass in St Mary's.
