This year record numbers of Year 10 students stepped up to the challenge of joining the 2019 Leeds Diocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes – 37 students! The theme of the Pilgrimage, led by Bishop Marcus was “Blessed are the Poor!” Our students certainly lived out our MSM school motto of Retribuam throughout the entire pilgrimage, actively searching out any and every opportunity to “give back” through service to the needs of others.
Some of the highlights for our students included the Torchlight Procession, the Stations of the Cross, which we led for all the other Diocesan schools and pilgrims, and the International Sunday Mass attended by over 10,000 people – one of our students being privileged to lead the whole procession, carrying the Leeds Diocesan Banner.
The attitude and conduct of every single MSM student was impeccable throughout, and has been publicly acknowledged and commended by many teachers, clergy and pilgrims from across the Diocese – true ambassadors of all that Mount St Mary’s Catholic High School believes in. Well done and Thank you!
