This is the first week of Advent. At Bishop Walsh we engage the community in using these weeks to prepare for the coming of Jesus at Christmas. We use the ‘Walk with me’ prayer booklets which focus on reviewing how we live our lives encouraging us to settle our grudges with other people and in doing so love God. On Wednesday 7th December we are having an Advent Year 7 Family Mass at 7.30pm in the Sports Hall – if you want to come along and worship it is open to all parents. Then on Friday 16th December all pupils will get the opportunity to go to confession in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. This is a great way to make a fresh start and unburden us of our offences to God and other people. Finally on the last day of term, Thursday 22nd December we have a whole school Christmas Assembly followed by a charity sing-a-long. Pupils have to pay £2 to attend this event and this year we are raising monies for the CAFOD Syrian Refugee Crisis Appeal. There is also a just giving page for this appeal. If possible could you like and share this on your Facebook. The idea is to appeal to the wider Bishop Walsh community to donate together for this cause.
