Y6 Visit St Mary's Convent

16 November 2007

As part of their sacramental preparation, Year 6 visited St Mary's Convent.

St Mary's is a Pugin Building, opened in 1841 a few months after St Chad's Cathedral.

The Prayer Garden is a beautiful haven of peace.
In the Chapel we were shown a Book of Profession.
Names of those who became a Sister of Mercy.
We had the opportunity to design our own names
We lit a candle to remind us that Jesus is light
During the afternoon we wrote a recipe

As we are preparing to be confirmed, we renewed our baptismal promises. In turn we each placed our names on the altar. Next, Ms Ryan poured water over our hands to cleanse us of our sins.
