Holy Week Activity


Holy Week


During this time of isolation, you might like to make witness to your faith by putting a cross on your front door.  If this is something you would like to do, please use whatever materials you have around the house and garden, to make a cross and send me a photograph of it on your front door, so that I can make a collection of them on the school website.  Please do not include any faces, just crosses, as the ones below.  STMphotos@dbmac.org.uk
