Black History Month gives everyone the opportunity to share, celebrate and understand the impact of black heritage and culture. It also serves as a reminder of the incredible beauty of our diverse communities. It inspires us to celebrate our differences and recognise that we are all unique and important parts of the Body of Christ.
Think this week about what you bring to your community and just how much you receive from those around you.
The chapel is open at lunchtime Monday- Thursday this week! Everyone is welcome. There will be no lunchtime Mass this week.
On the first day back we are due to celebrate our All Saints Day Mass, if you would like to help out with this Mass – reading or writing prayers, singing or playing music, altar serving or helping with other Mass parts please come down to the chapel at break or lunchtime!
If you’d like to be a part of the chaplaincy team, please visit Joe and Ruth in the chapel! If you haven’t handed back your applications yet, make sure you do it before Thursday.
