Year 2 had their annual Mass at Immaculate Heart Church this week, (Wednesday 23rd May 2018). They joined Father Andrew in a lovely service in which they shared very special and heartfelt bidding prayers with their families and the wider congregation. They also sang one of their favourite hymns, 'Share the Light of Jesus'.
Here are some of the bidding prayers they wrote and shared...
