2023 - 2024

Three Parish Event 29th Feb 2024

On Thursday 29th February 2024, a group of pupils from each of Our Lady of the Valley Catholic parish primary schools came together to learn more about our Diocese and our parish community. We began the day at the largest of our parish schools, St Michael’s & St John’s, followed by St Mary’s Sabden and finishing at Thorneyholme Dunsop Bridge. At each school, we joined in a Celebration of the Word and tour of the school, both led by the pupils. Parishioners Mr Vincent Murray and Mrs Anne Precious led the tours of our parish churches. All the children and staff enjoyed their day and found out so much about their parish schools and churches.

Month of Mary Club May 24

At St Michael and St John's RC Primary School the GIFT Team will be hosting a Month of Mary Club. This club will focus on particular Scripture linked to Mary, activities with Mary as its focus and the Rosary. This will take place on Tuesday lunchtimes throughout the month of May. On Tuesday 14th May and Tuesday 21st May, the GIFT Team will be hosting the club at 8:15am and would like to invite anyone from the Parish to join us in celebrating Mary.

Worship Shared Whole School Friday 1st March 2024

Since our return in September 2023, we helped to write bidding prayers for our New School Year Mass and we read at Mass.  We led prayers for Saint Michael at our Celebration Assembly on 29th September.  We have launched Bible Band, which is a weekly Bible story club.

On the 3rd October 2023, some of our team were fortunate enough to meet Bishop John Arnold at the Hope in the Future Celebration at Wigan.
