Leavers’ Mass

15th July 2017

On Wednesday 12th July we celebrated the Leavers’ Mass in school. The thirteen children leaving school at the end of term were presented with the Children’s Bibles from Aid to the Church in Need. These are real Bibles, but not the whole Bible. Texts are selected from the Old and New Testaments and the complete book is short enough for a young person to read. Also, every time we buy a Bible from Aid to the Church in Need, they are enabled to give three Bibles, free of charge, to children in the developing world. So some thirty-nine children, perhaps in India or Africa or China, will receive Bibles as a result of our Leavers’ Mass.
