Our Lady of Grace is situated in the Parish of St Andrew and St Mary on Dollis Hill Lane, where Father Michael O'Doherty is our parish priest. The school has very close links with the parish, all year groups attend mass regularly at the church. The Year 3 children at our school take part in the First Holy Communion programme which is run by the parish and Father Michael is very involved with the school, making regular visits to assemblies and events.

During Lent all classes have visited the Church to participate in Stations of the Cross. We have meditated and prayed whilst thinking about the sacrifice that Jesus made for us. As we moved form station to station, we imagined how important figures involved in that day such as Mary Magdalene and Simon of Cyrene would have been feeling and what we can learn from them.
Many thanks to Fr Michael for facilitating this and to those parents and carers who came to share the experience with us.
