Virtual Pilgrimage to Rome Update

 

St. Fergus Pupil Council would like to say a huge thank-you to everyone that took part in our Virtual Pilgrimage to Rome. We involved all our St. Fergus Families in our virtual Pilgrimage with the aim of raising money for our chosen charities Missio and Who? Cares Scotland as part of our Almsgiving during Lent. We are happy to announce that we walked 1566 miles, meaning that we made it to Rome and we also raised £147 for our charities! This is something we are very proud to have achieved as a school and would like to thank everyone who made this possible. If anyone still has any sponsorship money to Pay to the school, they can still do so via ParentPay.

Mini Vinnies Fun!

Image result for mini vinnies

Hello everyone, as you will know due to COVID the Mini Vinnies haven’t been able to take place this year. However on Sunday the 7th of February it is the feast of the Blessed Rosalie Rendu, who was a main part in starting up The Society of St Vincent de Paul. I have attached below a powerpoint which tells you all about Rosalie Rendu’s life. She was a caring nun who gave her time and talents to help the poor and sick. I am hoping that during these difficult times we can be inspired by Rosalie Rendu. I would like you to make a little booklet/story of her life talking about how she grew up and all the amazing things she has done to help others.

You do not have to be a Mini Vinnie to take part, anyone is welcome to join our Online Mini Vinnies!
