“Peace be with you and with your spirit”

At the beginning of the academic year, the whole community at Sacred Heart Secondary came together to celebrate Mass in the Sports Hall. It was a first for the new intake and also for the parishioners who had been invited to join in celebrations for the Feast of St Gregory. One parishioner commented afterwards that, on returning home, she had not even taken off her coat before calling a friend to say what a pity it was that her friend had not been able to attend. A member of staff commented, “There was such a hushed reverence as the host was raised that it gave me goose bumps.”

This is the context of our school where the Catholic ethos pervades every activity and visitors are quick to notice the difference it makes.
