Pupils and staff attended a service at Motherwell Cathedral on Wednesday 7th December to attend the Diocesan launch of This Is Our Faith, the new national syllabus for Religious Education in Catholic Schools. It was attended by representatives from each Catholic School in the Diocese of Motherwell, Bishop Devine and invited guests from North and South Lanarkshire.
6th year pupils taking part in the Caritas initiative assisted throughout the service. Sarah Mackenzie along with representatives from other local schools introduced the event; Daniel McDermott, Luke McMahon, Scott Sneddon, Nicole Donnelly, Mhairi Duncan, Nicole Leggate and Rebecca Murphy presented symbols representing the eight strands of faith during prayers of intercession. They also helped greet guests and created a Celtic cross during the service.
There was a reception at St Bride’s Hall afterwards.
