Year 9 & 10 Pilgrimage to Lisbon and Fatima

Each year the RE department try to run a short pilgrimage for some of our pupils. This year, for the first time, we were able to visit the shrine of Our Lady at Fatima. In addition, we visited the birthplace of St Anthony in Lisbon where we prayed before his relic as the late Pope John Paul II had done. The trip to Cristo Rei (Christ the King) was quite spectacular – it is very reassuring to have an image of Christ looking over a capital city.
