|Flowers around Our Lady's statue|
Every child in the school brought in a bedding plant on the day of our Mass. The children planted these in planting boxes around the school, making our school grounds look beautiful.
Mass then began with a procession, in which a child from each class brought forward a posy of flowers which were used to adorn the statue of Mary placed beside the altar. In his homily, Fr Alex referred to the beautiful flowers around the school and around the statue of Mary, and encouraged the children to strive to make the world more beautiful still through the signs of love that they show to one another.
The Mass was a very fitting way to honour Mary and to ask for her prayers.
