Knights rally to the cause

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

A Cam­bus­lang pri­mary school have re­ceived a gen­er­ous do­na­tion from a Catholic men’s or­gan­i­sa­tion.

When Coun­cil 490 of the Knights of St Columba in Blan­tyre heard that none of the class­rooms in the new St Bri d e’s Prima r y School had a cru­ci­fix on the wall, they de­cided that they should do some­thing about it.

The coun­cil pur­chased 13 cru­ci­fixes, one for each of the 12 class­rooms and a larger one for the head teacher’s room.

Last week three of their mem­bers vis­ited the school and pre­sented them to head teacher Pa­tri­cia Cul­lion dur­ing the morn­ing as­sem­bly.

Ms Cul­lion thanked them for this gen­er­ous ges­ture and said: “St Bride’s Pri­mary School is a fab­u­lous new build­ing, but it lacked some­thing very im­por­tant – Cru­ci­fixes.

“Now, be­cause of the gen­eros­ity of the Knights of St Columba, we have a fo­cus for our prayers and wor­ship within the school. We will re­mem­ber them in our prayers.”
