Catholic Education Fortnight

Catholic Education fortnight is celebrated from the Feast of St Margaret (16th November) to the Feast of St Andrew (30th November). We will be celebrating in each of our feeder parishes on either the 20th or 27th of November

A member of staff is coordinating the mass with the parish priest and the Caritas pupils. We would ask that all pupils from S1-6 can go along in school uniform and sit as a group. They will be asked to take part in readings, offertory and bidding prayers.

Some masses have been arranged and I will post the specific mass times once they have been confirmed

St Brides - Sunday 20th
