Our Year 8 students let their creative light shine at the beginning of February as they celebrated the feast of Candlemas.

We are incredibly proud of our student leadership at English Martyrs’ and our Masses were an opportunity to celebrate this in Liturgy and Music.

For the Liturgy, students volunteered for their ministries within the Mass and wrote and read intercessions. For the music in the Mass, students explored the choice of hymns, why we choose certain hymns for certain occasions and then chose the hymns for their Mass to reflect Candlemas, also known as the presentation of the Lord.

Students then exceeded expectations by writing their own hymns for the Mass, composing both the music and lyrics.

As a school community, we are truly blessed to have such talented students.
