St. Mary's Harvest Celebration Mass
This morning we welcomed Father Paul into school for our Harvest Celebration mass.
At Harvest time it's important to thank God for everything that he gives us to eat - all of the different crops that are grown in the earth, before being harvested and eaten.
During mass, we prayed for the farmers who plant, tend and feed the crops, and for the workers who transport our food and make it available to us.
We offered our mass for people in our country and in the wider world who are experiencing food shortages.
We sang some of our favourite hymns to celebrate harvest, including Autumn Days and The Best Gift.
We also placed all our food donations for the Loaves and Fishes charity around the altar for our mass.
Finally, a reminder that we are still collecting food donations for Loaves and Fishes for the rest of this week. So even if you missed sending a donation in for today's mass, it's not too late. Any more food donations will be gratefully received. Thank you for all your support.
