Learning about Mary

07 June 2013

PARTS of the Church of England follow the Western Catholic custom of dedicating the month of May to the Virgin Mary. This year, three C of E primary schools in Camden Town, London, came together on 10 May for a day of learning about Mary and pilgrimage.

Year 4 children from Hampstead Parochial C of E School; Holy Trinity and St Silas School; and St Michael's School, Camden Town, all gathered at St Michael's School to make banners and pilgrim badges, and to learn new music, as well as "fascinating facts about Mary and pilgrimage", the head teacher at Hampstead Parochial School, the Revd Simon Atkinson, says.

Fortunately, it was a sunny day, and they concluded with a procession, carrying their banners through the streets of Camden to Holy Trinity Church for the closing service.
