Friday 8th December saw the special 180th anniversary year come to a close with a celebratory Mass in Fenham. A congregation of 300, made up of former Fenham students and staff, RSCJs and friends of the Society of the Sacred Heart gathered in St Robert’s Church for the Mass of Thanksgiving celebrated by Bishop Emeritus Seamus Cunningham. Current students and staff from Sacred Heart High and Primary schools in Fenham, assisted as welcomers and singers.

On this Feast of the Immaculate Conception, Bishop Seamus preached about St Madeleine Sophie who like Our Lady was a woman of action, prepared to take risks and step out in faith. After a year of many celebrations, acts of service and prayer, throughout England and Wales, it was a fitting conclusion to our 180th anniversary.
