Event - Lent Love Thy Neighbour Programme

10 March 2017

As Lent is a time of giving, the children at St. Mark’s decided that they would like to help others in their local, Parish and wider community.

Each class held discussions about helping others and the responses from children were very caring and considerate.

On Friday 10th March, our Year 5 children supported the Parish Community at Holy Name Church, Great Barr. They celebrated Mass with the Parish community and then the children invited all the congregation to join them for tea and coffee in the Parish Centre afterwards.

The children enjoyed serving tea, coffee and cakes and they also enjoyed getting to know the Parish community by chatting to them about their lives and what they were doing for Lent.
