Advent & Christmas

Mission Together Mass


Some Year 4 pupils attended the Mission Together Mass at Holy Rood Catholic Church in Barnsley.

The Mass was led by Bishop Ralph.

Christingle Service


On Monday we had our Christingle service.

All of the children made a Christingle.



The orange is to remind us of the world. The red ribbon reminds us that God's love goes all around the world and that Jesus died on the cross. The four cocktail sticks represent the four seasons and the fruits of the earth. The candle symbolises Jesus, the light of the world, who brings hope to people living in darkness.


Parents joined us for our Christingle service at the start of Advent.


Advent Wreaths



We have made Advent wreaths in preparation for the start of Advent.

Advent means "coming". The purple candles are lit on the first, second and fourth Sunday in Advent. The pink candle is lit on the third Sunday in Advent.

St Pius Travelling Crib


The Travelling Crib has arrived at Sacred Heart.



The children have heard the story of the first Christmas when Jesus was born. They found out who visited Baby Jesus and what gifts they brought him.


The crib travels from school to school, visiting all of the schools in our Learning Community.

One family, growing together in love and faith, flourishing in an ever-changing world. We love, we believe, we shine, we achieve.
