Mary Help of Christians

Mary Help of Christians Feast Day- 24th May 2020 

 On the 24th May each year we celebrate the feast day of " Mary Help of Christians". Mary Help of Christians is a special name given to Holy Mary for the help she gives always to Christians. Don Bosco said "Have faith in Mary Help of Christians and you will see what miracles are" This day has been a very special tradition in our Salesian school. A day we treasure and always remember fondly.

Traditionally children in our older classes attend a special mass in honour of Mary Help of Christians. Children in our younger classes take part in a procession around the school. They hold flowers that they make in their classes and they are always so proud of their beautiful creations!!! They say prayers and sing songs like, "Ave Maria", " Friends are like Flowers", " Bells of the Angelus". A pupil, who celebrated a May Birthday, would be invited to "Crown" our statue of Mary.

​This year many of our wonderful children have made flowers at home as part of our MAY CHALLENGE and have shared them with us so thank you to all. You have been like busy bees making gorgeous flowers!!! We love them and are so proud of you and your many talents.

​This year is the Salesian Sisters' Centenary year. Sunday 24th May 2020 was to be an extra special day for all of us in the salesian community. We were all looking to a FAMILY DAY. This Sunday you might have an extra special family day with your family at home. Go for a walk together, enjoy a special family meal, play some games as a family, get dressed up and take some photos!!!Share with us how you spent the day!!!

​As a treat we have some photos to share with you. We hope you enjoy photos from past May Processions and of the flowers some of our children have made at home this year!!!

​As a treat we are giving all our Salesian children a SCHOOL WORK FREE DAY on Monday 25th May!!!ENJOY
