Today saw St Ann's first parish Youth Art Exhibition.
Children of the parish were invited to present a piece of their own art work with a religious theme.
Entries were divided by age group; and certificates, and even prizes, were awarded to those judged to have produced the best art work in their category.
Although entries were open to all children with a connection to the parish, a large proportion of the entries came from pupils at our parish school of St Anne's.
We are very grateful to Mr Donovan and the staff at St Anne's for encouraging the children in this venture and even to devoting some time in the busy school day for the children to produce their 'masterpieces'.
This is not to say that there weren't also some excellent entries from children in other schools and from children who have moved on to secondary school.
Here is just a selection of the very many entries. If you'd like to see even more, please have a look at our parish Flickr stream.
