Yesterday we celebrated the feast day of St Cecelia at our voluntary lunchtime Mass!
Thank you to Fr Wilfred for celebrating Mass for us and to everyone who joined us- it was especially great to see so many of our new Year 7 Chaplaincy Team at the celebration.
Well done to everyone who was involved in the Mass- altar serving, singing, reading and writing prayers!
St Cecilia is the Patron Saint of music. She was born in the 2nd century in Rome, and although she came from a rich family, she cared for everyone, no matter what their social status was. She taught hundreds of people about God and inspired many people to become Christians. When the governor heard what she was doing, he sentenced her to death. It is believed that St Cecilia was praising God through song when she was killed. The liturgical colour yesterday was red because St Cecilia was a martyr. She was killed because she had a strong faith and stood up for what she believed in.
The word of the week this week is WORSHIP. We worshiped through music in our Mass as we remembered and celebrated St Cecelia.
Let us know in the comments below what your favourite worship song is at the moment!
Remember that everyone is welcome to join our voluntary lunchtime Masses in the Chapel at 12.15 on a Friday!
