Apostles of Mercy pilgrimage to Westminster

FullSizeRender 6

This year as we are celebrating the Jubilee of Mercy, fifty students have committed to being Apostles of Mercy. On Monday the 9th and 16th of May, several of these Apostles of Mercy from year 7, 8 and 9 went on a pilgrimage to Westminster Cathedral. The purpose for our pilgrimage was to to give them the opportunity to follow the ‘Way of Mercy’, starting at the Holy Door.

“On Monday the 16th of May we went on a pilgrimage to Westminster Cathedral.  Before the pilgrimage, we prepared for our journey by going to confession at school and going to Mass at our local parish ‘Our Lady Help of Christians’.  Fr Mark said Mass and asked us to pray for him. At the Cathedral we followed the ‘Way of Mercy’, starting at the Holy Door and then following the ‘Way of Mercy’ route, reflecting on different aspects of mercy at various stations around the Cathedral.  At these stations we read some information about the different acts of mercy and prayed. By going through the Holy Door, following the ‘Way of Mercy’, confessing our sins and attending Mass, we received an indulgence.” (Mary Wheatley and Zoe Sotto)

Our Apostles of Mercy were encouraged to hope as Pope Francis expressed that we may ‘experience the joy of encountering that grace which transforms all things.’

Christmas Gift BAGS 2015 – Mission Complete!

Thank you so much for all your generosity. Many of our school families are themselves under considerable financial pressure, especially at this time of year, so it really is profound generosity we see in the pictures below of our very-own Santa-Sleigh (mini-bus).

For some families, the gifts donated by JOA are the only ones that they will receive this Christmas.

Well done and sincere thanks to everyone who contributed!
