What a truly special day!
We were so proud of you all during Mass. Beautiful acting, singing, reading and prayers in a wonderful atmosphere of love, reverence and warmth. Great to have so many visitors too! A day when School, Family and Parish came together to celebrate the Feast of our Patron Saint Gabriel of Our Lady of Sorrows.
A HUGE well done to everyone who contributed to
‘A Cake for Our Cardinal’.
In P2, we decided to use the motto that the Cardinal chose when asked to be Archbishop in 1985: ‘Serve the Lord with Gladness’. A tree, with a branch for each class, symbolises how we grow together in God’s Love and share our talents. We invited pupils from nursery to P7 to come and work on the cake. Can you spot the symbol of your class? In the middle of the tree you will see our new ‘THIS IS our Faith’ book. We also included the Passionist symbol for St.Gabriel and our own school logo. The red ribbon was for our Cardinal, the purple for our school and black for the Passionists.
His Eminence was delighted with the cake and has decided to present it as a gift to The Missionaries of Charity in Edinburgh – Nuns who are part of Mother Teresa’s order.
Hope you enjoyed your cake too!
From all the staff in P2.
