Mass to commence The Holy Year of Mercy


On Tuesday 8th December the children in Years 2- 6 attended a very special Mass at Sacred Heart RC Church to commence the Holy Year of Mercy declared by Pope Francis. All of the children gathered in the narthex of the church as Father O’Kane blessed the Holy Doors with prayers,  holy water and incense before passing through the Holy Door into church.

The children greatly enjoyed this wonderful beginning to what will be a very special year and they each brought home a souvenir missalette  to remember the occasion.

Our Nursery, Reception and Year 1 children  all watched the celebration via the church webcam and two children from year 5 attended Mass at Salford Cathedral with Mrs Walters.
