We come to school to love, learn and share in the light of Jesus

Celebrating our faith

At St Wulstan's we are extremely proud of our Catholic faith, and we take every opportunity possible to celebrate this. Take a look below at some of the events that link to our faith that we have celebrated recently. 

Christingle 2021

This year children in Years 1 and 2 celebrated Christingle with a special service in church.  We were so glad to be able to share this special time with our families this year.

Remembrance Day 2021

Remembrance was a wonderful day of reflection and prayer at St Wulstan's. We all took part in special class liturgies; we celebrated Mass and we reflected on all of the people who have died for our country or for a cause that they believe in. 

 

Combined School's Mass - October 2021

We attended the Combined School's Mass. Unfortunately, we were only allowed a very limited number of places, but we still have a wonderful time, and even managed to get a photograph with Bishop Stephen!

 

Harvest 2021

This Year we collected food parcels for the Alice Charity and Open Door.  Our families were extremely supportive and we are so grateful, as were the charities.  As part of our Harvest Celebration, we celebrated Mass as a whole school.

 

Mary's Birthday - September 2021

On Wednesday 8th September the school marked the Feast of the Nativity of Our Lady, the day we celebrate Mary's birthday.  The children offered prayers of thanks, sung “Happy Birthday” and as with all celebrations there were a few treats.  A focus of the coming term is looking at promoting the lives of the Saints throughout the school.

 

Year 3 and 4 Holy Communion June 2021

After waiting a year for some children, we were finally able to celebrate Holy Communion. It was wonderful to see so many staff and parents attending the masses which took place on consecutive weekends. A special thank you goes to Fr Dominic and Miss Smith for their hard work and organisation

May Procession 2021

This year, we were able to resume celebrating the May Procession. Father Dominic involved every class, and one 'bubble' processed to the parish garden in order to crown Mary. We were joined by lots of parishioners too!

 

Bambinelli 2020

A beloved annual tradition at the Basilica in preparation for Christmas, the Blessing of the Bambinelli was first instituted by St. John Paul II. On the Third Sunday of Advent, the children of Rome are encouraged to bring the baby Jesus (Bambinelli) from each of their Nativity sets to St. Peter’s Square. Following the Sunday Angelus address, the Pope blesses the figurines.

We celebrated our own Bambinelli within school. Every class presented their baby Jesus to Father Dom, who blessed each one. We shared prayers and reflections on the significance of such a special birth.

Mardi Gras 2020

To help lead us in to Lent and help children understand the change, the whole school celebrated a special day themed around Mardi Gras.

A special celebration was organised, with decorations and carnival music in the dinner hall. There was a real party atmosphere and it was great to see the children dancing around to the music whilst waiting for their special lunch, which included pancakes and a range of toppings! Children made special masks in the colours of Mardi Gras, and wore these during the day. They also spent time in classrooms  learning about the festival and why we celebrate it. Children really enjoyed this special feast before their fast!

Advent and Christmas 2019

What a special and busy time it has been, firstly preparing ourselves to remember the birth of Jesus and then all of the celebrations that have taken place for Christmas. Events have included class-led liturgies; choir performances at the hospital, local care homes and hospices; school and family Masses; Christmas lunch, Carol Concerts in church for Key Stage 2 and Nativity performances for EYFS and KS1. What a special time it has been!
