Where are they all going to sit??!

At the Saturday night Mass at Our Lady of Pity, last night, just as we reached the second verse of the entrance hymn a coach load of young people arrived! 70 young people from Alsager and Bury (they were staying at a local activity centre for a weekend of fun and games) arrived for Mass. It was a bit of a squeeze, but when everyone moved up everyone found a seat ... eventually, we even had some of the young people sat on the floor at the front!

We tried to make them feel every welcome, and from their comments after Mass, I think we did! Some even commented that it was the best Mass they had ever been to!

It's really good for us to know that we can welcome huge groups of young people and make them feel at home. Well done Our Lady's - definately a welcoming parish community.
