Two hundred pupils from schools in Westminster Diocese joined Bishop John Wilson and Fr Philip Baptiste for a special Mission Together Mass in the church of Our Lady of the Holy Souls, Kensal New Town.
In the celebration, marking 175 years of Mission Together across the world, Bishop John told the children how we follow in the footsteps of the Church’s great missionaries when we share our faith with others. In this way we show the world the love of God, as children helping children, through our prayers and by sharing what we have to help others.
Before the close of Mass Bishop John blessed the Mission Rosary beads that were given to all the children who attended and asked them to pray the Mission Rosary for children living in hardship in all five continents of the world.
Thank you to Bishop John for a wonderful celebration, to the staff who escorted their pupils and especially to the children who participated so beautifully.
