Pupils from Winterfold School, Chaddesley Corbett held a moving Remembrance Mass on Thursday 9th November, with readings and prayers from All Souls' Day delivered seamlessly by 5R.
Father Lamb's homily focused on the significance of sacrifice and the irrepairable damage caused by the loss of human life during war time. The orchestra played 'Abide With Me' and 'I Vow to Thee My Country' beautifully, the Head Boy, Oliver Bullock read the Roll of Honour and the Head Girl, Kayla Newton read the Exhortation. Finally, Alice Price and Henry Bower played the Last Post marking a two-minute silence, before playing the Reveille.
A prayer for the Faithful Departed: Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord
And let perpetual light shine upon them
May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed
Through the mercy of God rest in peace
