News from around the Archdiocee of Liverpool
Liverpool’s historic St George’s Hall was the setting for a remembrance service led by Father Dominic Risley which involved city-centre primary schools St Nicholas and Pleasant Street.
The service took place at the war memorial outside St George’s Hall on 10 November, with Father Dominic Risley, who is based at the Metropolitan Cathedral, leading prayers with the children who then delivered readings themselves. Father Dominic is a regular visitor to St Nicholas Catholic Primary, where he acts as a school governor.
The children listened to the prayers, took part in a respectful two-minute silence and heard the Last Post played twice.
Martin Davies, headteacher of St Nicholas, said: ‘The children laid poppy wreaths at the war memorial that classes had made in school in the days leading up to the war memorial visit. Assemblies and lessons in both schools that week reflected on the importance of remembrance and what it means for us all today.’
