SVP Autumn Housebound Mass 2019
St Werburgh's SVP organised a Mass for the Elderly and Housebound in St Werburgh & St Columba Primary School on Sunday, 22nd September 2019 at 2.30 p.m.
Fr Paul Shaw celebrated Mass and, as he usually does on these occasions, asked every person if they had someone particular they would like us to pray for, or a special intention to be included during our Mass. A group of Mini Vinnies from the Primary School joined in the Mass and also shared their personal prayer intentions.
The opportunity for the children to hear the concerns of older parishioners and to talk about their own prayer needs resulted in a real ‘bonding’ and a moving experience between the generations.
After Mass a lovely afternoon tea was served and thoroughly enjoyed by all.
