Mass of the Spirit was celebrated on Wednesday 16th of May with Bishop Steve and concelebrants Father Mark and Father Darren.
During the Mass, seven students received the Sacraments of Confirmation and 1st Holy Communion. This was the culmination of 15 weeks of preparation. The highlight was to see the joy on the faces of our students. It was a powerful witness to Christ to see these young people, standing alongside their sponsors, proclaiming that they had made the decision to bring God into their lives. The gift of the Holy Spirit is awe inspiring and is what unites us all. This is the first time in the last ten years that a Sacramental Programme has been undertaken at Aquinas College. Special thanks to Mrs. Monique Harris and Mr. Vince Shaw for their time and dedication. At the end of the Mass, Bishop Steve thanked Deacon Vince for the time and service he had given the school in his role of Director of Special Character.
Another two students received the Blessed Sacraments at the following Sunday Mass at St Mary’s Immaculate. We are thrilled to welcome these students into full communion in the Catholic church.
We would like to thank Simone Magner for taking some beautiful photos which captured the day perfectly.
