Father Philip’s last Mass at SMSP and commisioning of Mini Vinnnies

On Friday the 20th of October we had a Mass to celebrate the time that Father Philip has spent in the Parish and with the school.  As part of the Mass Father Philip commisioned our new MInni Vinnie Members.  We have been meeting for a couple of weeks now, but we were very excited to get our certificate and our badge to show that we are now offical members.  Father told us about the SVP and we found out that Bertie who regularly joins us for Friday mass is a member of the grown up group.  We look forward to our degular meetings and “turning concern into action” as our motto say.

Launch Assembly for Mini Vinnies

This afternoon we had an assembly to explain the work of the MIni Vinnies and to invite KS2 children to consider joining the group that will run during a lunchtime in the school.  Barbara visited from the organisation and explain the history of the group and what sort of activities we might get involved in if we became part of the group. A letter went home with the children who were interested.

Visit from the Bishop

On the 28th of April the Bishop came and celebrated Mass with us.  We listened to the story of doubting Thomas during the Gospel. In the Homily the Bishop reminded us of three important people who met with Jesus after he rose from the dead on Easter Sunday, Mary Magdalene, Thomas and Peter.  After Mass the Bishop came and visited our classrooms and we were able to ask him lots of questions.

Year Four Discover more about Pentecost

Year Four traveled to St Francis Primary in Norwich to share a day discovering what Pentecost is all about with other schools in the MAT.  They had a good time working with others and learning more about this important celebration of the Church.

Diocesan Schools Mass to celebrate the Year of Mercy

On 29th of September Year 6 went to St John’s Cathedral in Norwich to celebrate Mass with schools from across the Diocese.  The Mass was celebrated by Bishop Alan Hope.  During the mass we received a special Year of Mercy candle to take back to school with us.  After Mass we were lucky that the rain had stopped and we were able to enjoy a picnic lunch in the gardens.
