This was certainly not the start to 2021 we all expected. However, here at St Clare’s, we are determined to maintain the Catholic Life of the school and a comprehensive Collective Worship programme.
Father Gabriel was due in school to deliver a Start of Year Mass for us, but instead delivered it remotely from St Wilfrid’s Parish Church with our Year 6 key worker children contributing the readings and bidding prayers.
Father spoke to us about how we should never give up, that we should always try and how we can make 2021 whatever we want it to be, despite the threat of the coronavirus.
We prayed for all members of our school community, including those mourning, those suffering with illness and isolation. We also prayed for our school staff during these difficult times.
