Bishop Keith speaks to Runcorn school 2015


undefinedA thought-provoking and optimistic leaving service for Year 11 pupils (15-to-16-year-olds) was held at St Chad's Catholic and Church of England High School, Runcorn. The Bishop of Birkenhead gave a talk and the school choir sang �Down in the River to Pray', �For the Beauty of the Earth' and �O Happy Day'.

The students heard a reflection on their time at the school – and in his address, Bishop Keith touched on themes raised by the reading from Philippians (4:8-13), which included these words …

“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things.

“Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me – put it into practice.”

PIctured at the leaving service - Niall Hammond (School Chaplain), Bishop Keith, students Ellie, Michael and Daniel, and Mrs Debbie Burke (Head of School)
