We are now in the third week of Advent. Advent is the time when we prepare for the feast of the Incarnation of Jesus at Christmas. This means we should be thinking of repairing bad relationships, letting go of grudges so that we can honour and celebrate the birth of the Saviour on Christmas Day. In this spirit I was pleased to see so many pupils go to Confession on Friday, 12th December.
Advent Carol Service. There is a celebration of the happy and holy season of Christmas at Bishop Walsh’s Carol Service at 7.30pm in the Sports Hall this Thursday, 18th December 2014. It would be great to see as many parents as possible at our Carol Service.
End of Term Arrangements. Pupils will finish school on Friday 19th December 2014 at around 1.00pm. None of our buses can guarantee a service at this time so please make sure your child has alternative arrangements to get home this Friday.
