Benediction with the Cathedral School

Each Friday this term, Key Stage 2 children from the Cathedral Primary School are coming into the church for Exposition and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. They sing a couple of simple songs of adoration, and say the Divine Praises, but most of the time is spent in silent prayer. The children have been preparing by learning about Benediction over recent weeks. It is impressive that they are able to remain silent and still for a few minutes of prayer at the end of the busy school week. Hopefully it will prove to be a special and memorable time in their lives of faith.
