Mount Carmel held a Welcome Mass for Year 7 pupils and their families at the end of a successful first half term.

We were very grateful to Canon Tony McBride who celebrated Mass for us and it was a pleasure showing him around school before Mass to meet our pupils and staff.

The Welcome Mass is a milestone in our school community and marks the start of their secondary education faith journey.  Pupils were involved in the Mass as readers, part of the offertory or in the choir.

We also welcomed Headteachers and teachers from partner primary schools who brought with them candles to signify the moving on from primary to secondary school and the passing on of the care and spiritual development of each pupil.
