St Wilfrids Catholic High School, Featherstone.
Celebrate the 50th Anniversary in 2013
St Wilfrid's Day is always the high point in the Calendar for pupils and staff at St Wilfrid's Catholic High School and Sixth Form College, Featherstone and this year was no exception. On Thursday 24th October 2013, two thousand people; past and present pupils, staff, governors, Head Teachers from the Bishop Konstant Academy Trust and across the Diocese of Leeds gathered in a marque on the school fields to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of St Wilfrid's.
The celebrations began with Mass and after a thoroughly wet week the sun was shining as people gathered in the tent. Before the Mass began, pupils shared their joy through dancing and a drama piece reflecting on the last 50 years of life at St Wilfrid's Featherstone.
Mgr. John Wilson, Diocesan Administrator and former Chaplain at St Wilfrid's, was the main celebrant for Mass. He thanked everyone present for the part they have played in the life of the school. He encouraged everybody to move forward keeping Christ in the centre of all they do. The occasion was a fitting tribute to 50 years of Catholic education in Featherstone.
Things may have changes a lot in the past 50 years, both at St Wilfrid's and in the world but the mission of the school remains the same. The St Wilfred’s day celebrations are a sure sign of the school's continuing commitment to pass on the Catholic faith to future generations.
I have photograph St Wilfrid's Day for the passed 12 years, and as usual the dancing before the Mass and the singing and music during the services was first class. for information on my school services.
