News from around the Archdiocese of Liverpool
From foodbanks to footprints, children from Our Lady’s Catholic Primary, Prescot helped make Synod Sunday a memorable occasion in two local parishes.
The Year 4 pupils created paper footprints which they used as a symbolic decoration in both parish churches with links to the school, Our Lady Immaculate and St Joseph’s and Our Lady Help of Christians. They placed the footprints in a path leading up to the altar and then back towards the exit – representing the experience of receiving God’s word and then taking the Good News out into the world. Families of pupils donated food, meanwhile, to the foodbanks on display in each church and head teacher Haydn Boyle explained: ‘It was the children’s idea to arrange the food in the shape of the cross. We sent out photos of their efforts to all of our parents on the Friday before Synod Sunday to encourage more families to attend their parish Masses.’
