On Monday, June 22nd 2020 we celebrated the Feast Day of St. Thomas More – patron saint of our school.
Unfortunately, given the current circumstances, we are unable to gather for our annual celebration at Our Lady & St. Columba’s Church in Wallsend. Normally, we would mark the occasion with a joyful celebration of Mass followed by summer fair, barbeque and the opportunity to talk to students about their last 12 months at St. Thomas More RC Academy.
Instead, with the help of Fr. Chris Hughes – school governor and parish priest of St. Cuthbert & St. Joseph’s, North Shields – we have put together a virtual celebration for you to participate in at home.
This year’s theme would have been ‘Unbroken’ following our fantastic School Mission earlier this year and the message seems somewhat apt now. It may feel like our world is broken, however God’s love for us never is.
Please take 30 minutes out of your day and feel warmly welcomed as you join us for this celebration on the Feast Day of St. Thomas More.
