10/04/2017 FAITH FRIENDS 2016-2017

The Religious Education department organised outreach programmes with the Year 13 students, through their General RE programme in school. Two of the groups had the opportunity to sign up to work with children in local primary schools, preparing for sacraments.

A number of Loreto Year 13 became Faith Friends to P4 pupils, preparing to celebrate their First Holy Communion at St. Malachy’s Primary School. Other Year 13 students, had the same opportunity, but working with Primary 7 pupils preparing for their Confirmation at St. John’s Primary School.

To conclude our year, we had a Mass in Loreto Convent Chapel, celebrated by Fr G. Hasson, on Monday 27th March. All the primary school pupils who had participated in the programme were invited to attend with their senior Faith Friend. The Mass marked the closing of the year with the Faith Friends, which was an extremely fulfilling experience for both the Loreto senior students and their primary school Faith Friends.
