Our link with St Aelred's Parish community is very strong. Once every half term, the children help to lead the mass in church by reading the prayers and scriptures, welcoming people into church, carrying the offertory gifts and leading the music. Mass at St Aelred's church starts at 9.30 a.m. (Although, if the children have a job to do, we ask that they arrive no later than 9.15 in order to adequately prepare.) Everyone is welcome! There is a great sense of community. Mass is always followed by a coffee morning, where cakes and biscuits, tea and coffee and ... of course ... raffle tickets can be bought.
