On Tuesday 26 March a schools’ celebration was held at St. Mary’s Cathedral to welcome Bishop Robert to the Diocese.
The congregation of over 600 people was made up of pupils, staff and school chaplains from our 156 Diocesan schools. Two pupils from Year 5, Alice and Olivia, were chosen to attend along with Mrs Wilders and Mrs Bowden.
Bishop Robert was presented with a stole which had been designed by two children including Alice from our school. He was also presented with a book of welcome that included a greeting page from each school. The celebration liturgy included readings, prayers and songs on the theme ‘Called to Serve’. After the celebration, Bishop Robert spent time greeting pupils and adults from each school individually.
