Rockingham celebrated Christmas a little bit differently last month when Our Lady of Lourdes Parish held their Vigil Family Mass in the grounds of their local Catholic High School.

At the pleasure of Principal Caroline Payne and staff, Kolbe Catholic College played host to the Christmas celebration for the first time in its 20 year history with nearly 500 worshippers attending the Mass.

Kids from the parish’s Children’s Liturgy staged a nativity play while parish youth group ‘Discovered‘ and students from the college provided music for the occasion.

Parish Priest of Rockingham, Fr Michael Separovich thanked all the staff at the college as well as all the parishioners, young and old, who had helped facilitate an occasion he described as “prayerful and spiritually uplifting.”
