Service of Life

In November we have been thinking about the people in our parish and school community who have passed away.

We prayed for them each day in November and hung their names on our Tree of Light.

On 25th November Fr Shaun led a Service of Light for us and our families in the school hall where we remembered all of those who had died.

Each person who had died in our families was remembered during the service. We brought up a light to remember each individual.

We prayed the Hail Mary through Liturgical dance.

We prayed together with our families to remember the deceased.
