Knights rally to the cause
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.”
