Students celebrate the start of the Jubilee Year of Mercy

It is part of the tradition of the Church, arising from the practice of our Jewish forebears, that every 25 years the Holy Father declares a Holy Year of Jubilee. On 13 March 2015 Pope Francis made an announcement for an Extraordinary Jubilee for a Holy Year of Mercy which will run from Tuesday 8 December 2015- Sunday 20 November 2016. The announcement was followed on 11 April 2015 by the Bull of Indiction from his Holiness entitled ‘Misericordiae Vultus’ (Face of Mercy).

St Thomas More Catholic School staff and students have pleased to be joining in with this historic event through a series of classes, activities and assemblies.
