St Mary’s RC Church
Our parish church is St Mary’s RC Church based in the heart of Newton Aycliffe, 5 minutes drive from our school. The Parish Priest is Fr A Cornforth. We also have our own chapel where Mass is celebrated with our children and the parish every fortnight. We have whole school celebrations or class Masses.
As part of our Mission week on the theme of ‘Unbroken’ we celebrated Mass on Sunday and handed the mission over to the Church.
The children prepared for the reception of the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion in Y4. Children learn about the importance of the Sacraments through drama, storytelling, writing, singing and dancing.
The children are supported in their preparation and celebration of the Sacrament by the school, parents and the parish.
