2023 - 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.
