Upper Years help Christ the Prince of Peace parish celebrate their feast day
Upper Years pupils at St George's Junior School made their annual 'pilgrimage' to local Catholic Parish Church, Christ the Prince of Peace, on Tuesday 20 November to honour the feast day and further strengthen the links between School and parish.
The children in Years 3-6 processed from the Junior School to the church in Portmore Park Road, carrying a large St George's banner and proudly representing the school, they walked with the Headmaster Mr Antony Hudson to the nearby church.
Upon arrival at the church, Fr Con, Parish Priest, was on hand to greet the children and begin proceedings. St George's pupils were involved in the readings and offertory procession during the Mass, with some pupils participating as alter servers, whilst the Chamber Choir and Orchestra were also on hand to provide some musical accompaniment and create a memorable end to the service.
It was a wonderful service and Fr Con is always incredibly supportive of the Junior School, so many thanks go to him and the local community for welcoming St George’s so warmly.
Then, the following Sunday, Junior School pupils joined the Christ the Prince of Peace Parish once more to celebrate the feast day with an ‘International Mass’.
The children who attended ranged from Nursery to Year 6 and sang the Responsorial Psalm, led beautifully by Mr Hudson.
The Georgian family filled the church with ‘maroon happiness’. It was a wonderful celebration.
