Mass is taking place during the Covid pandemic at 10.30am on Sundays as usual but strict Social Distancing guidelines are followed in church. Anyone attending church will be asked to wear a mask.
St. Michael's Church is open every Tuesday morning from 9am until 12pm for anyone who would like to come in and spend some quiet time.
Due to the Covid Pandemic, this year's Sacramental Preparation programme for Year 4 and above has not yet started. The children who had completed last year's programme before lockdown (currently Y5 and above) will be invited to receive their First Holy Communion during November 2020.
Our school is a big family with strong parish and community links. Care and excellent standards of teaching and learning are key factors of our mission statement.
At St Michael's we aim to help children develop in their journey of faith in a positive learning environment and we place Jesus, His teachings and His values at the centre of what we do.
Sacrament of the Eucharist
Through the sacrament of Eucharist we remember what Jesus did for us in his life, death and resurrection. We remember particularly the Last Supper, that final meal Jesus shared with his disciples. At that meal Jesus gave us the Eucharist so that we could remember him in a special way. When we receive Communion, we believe that we receive the person of Jesus into our very beings. We become one with him, and we become one with each other. As a community we become 'the body of Christ'.
The Sacrament of the Eucharist is received by Year 4 children in May and June after having received the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The celebrations take place at Sacred Heart and St Michael’s Catholic Church.
We also believe that our school and parish will make a valuable contribution to your child’s development. St. Michael's is a secure and caring environment where children develop their many talents and we fully recognise the importance of educating the ‘whole’ child.
Academic excellence for all children is one of our goals but we also seek to nurture those special gifts which makes each child unique.
Home, School and Parish links are also vital. We value the full contribution to school life that parents make and the support offered by Father Fitzpatrick our parish Priest. Together, we ensure that St Michael's remains a very special place to all.
