Primary School Links

St Gabriel’s Gift Team led St Marie’s RC Primary School, St Hilda’s RC Primary School, St Joseph’s RC Primary School, Our Lady of Lourdes RC Primary School, Guardian Angel’s RC Primary School and St Joseph and St Bede’s RC Primary Schools gift teams in a Stations of the Cross workshop. The students collaborated with different feeder schools to recreate the Stations of the Cross using different art materials. At the end, the St Gabriel’s Gift Team read out their Stations of the Cross reflections, as the primary school students held up their artwork.

Parish Links

We also have strong links with our Parish Churches and support their Impact Groups. GIFT Team have also attended Senior Citizens Parish clubs.

The Gift Team attended Mass at St Marie’s, with Father Foley. One Gift Team member was an altar server for the Mass and other students read the prayers of the faithful. This was a great opportunity for the students to be involved in the local parish.

The Gift Team visited the Senior Citizens coffee morning at Guardian Angels Parish Centre, where they chatted to parishioners and got to know more about their lives.
