Loreto is a wonderful school comprising some 1050 students and 100 staff. We are a happy community, one which is rooted in tradition whilst at the same time very forward looking. For me as Headteacher, it is a privilege to serve this community and I cherish the tremendous gift that has been placed into my hands by the Loreto Sisters. Our heritage is rich. Indeed, in 2010 we celebrated both the 400 Anniversary of Mary Ward’s founding of the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary and our School Centenary. Such a heritage is a source of inspiration for the future of the School and for our work with the young women in our care.
Prayer for Manchester
Compassionate and loving Father,
We pray for all those affected by the Manchester Arena explosion last night.
May those missing be reunited quickly with their families.
We pray for healing for those suffering and peace to those grief-stricken and angry.
We pray with thanks for the paramedics and police for the care and help they constantly give.
Hear our prayers too for those who support terrorism in your name. May they be enlightened by your truth and love which exposes the dignity of all people irrespective of belief, race, or culture.
We pray that we show our love and compassion for others, in our words and actions.
