Primary School Masses at St Saviour’s and St Mary of the Angels:

Please note there will be no Masses celebrated in our Primary Schools this coming week.

St Mary of the Angels:

Last Friday, 13th October we celebrated the centenary of the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima. To celebrate this, Holy Mass was celebrated in the school hall at 9.15am. This also included the placing and blessing of a beautiful new painting depicting the story of Fatima. We are very grateful to the artist Chris Richmond for his dedication to this project and to the children who assisted. We pray that Our Lady of Fatima will bring many graces to the school in the years ahead. 

Please remember that Fr Louis & Deacon Tony are always available to support every member of our schools family and can be contacted through the schools offices or parish office on 327 6158.
