The Towers Convent School has become the first school in the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton to host the Catholic Youth Ministry’s candle stand, which was blessed by Pope Benedict XVI on his visit to Britain last September.
The symbol-rich artwork of the candle stand tells the story of God’s infinite love and has been adopted as the national symbol for Catholic youth ministry in England and Wales.
The senior girls were the first to see the candle stand and listen to an assembly based on each of the panels and then the junior pupils too were able to view and touch the stand.
The school was delighted to welcome Ray Mooney, Arundel and Brighton’s youth adviser, who explained the candle’s significance.
