Today I was lucky enough to accompany the new Chaplaincy team as they attended the Catholic Children’s Society Good Shepherd Mass in Westminster Cathedral. It was a joy and a privilege to be with them at such a special Mass and our children represented our school beautifully. The children were all impressed with the Cathedral and enjoyed participating in the Mass itself and what great participants they were. I could hear all of our children singing along with gusto in the hymns; Alessia and Lamont carried the banner in the procession at the beginning and end of Mass and Annie was part of the offertory procession. Our two readers, Henry and Alex, were composed and read with great clarity and expression. The Bishop preached about the theme of the Mass, which was “Shine Your Light” and asked questions as part of his homily. Lamont gave a lovely, articulate, well thought out answer which impressed the Bishop and all of us.
The children were a credit to our school and to all their parents. I was proud to be with them today and look forward to their next Chaplaincy event.
