St Paul’s unites in Liturgy for Catholic Education

On Wednesday 19th October, St Paul’s Catholic College in Sunbury hosted a special Liturgy for the staff from schools across the Upper Thames Deanery. The objective was to recognise and celebrate the unique and irreplaceable contribution that each member of staff makes to the mission of Catholic Education in the local area of Spelthorne and Richmond boroughs.
The Liturgy was prepared and led by the Chaplain of St Paul’s, Mrs Becky Walker, assisted by the Chaplaincy Team and members of the School Choir. During the Liturgy, staff were invited to reflect on the gospel account of the calling of the disciples, as well as Blessed John Henry Newman’s poem ‘Some Definite Service’. Each participant was reminded that their role within the school community was unique and valued, and that they each played a definite and irreplaceable role in the mission of Catholic Education.
Following the Liturgy, St Paul’s Together (PTA) served tea and cakes, and participants had the opportunity to socialise and meet with colleagues from other schools. It is hoped to repeat this very successful event in the future, in order to further develop the excellent co-operation between schools and parishes in the Upper Thames Deanery.
