The Bishop of Salford, Bishop John Arnold, came into school as seven primary schools and All Saints High School took part in faith activities.

The purpose of the day was exploring the life and inspiration of Saint Oscar Romero as the schools are a part of the Romero Catholic Academy Trust.

Pupils came from Christ the King, St Mary Magdelene’s, Holy Trinity, St Augustine’s and St John’s in Burnley, Sacred Heart in Colne as well as All Saints Rawtenstall and St Mary’s in Bacup.

They took part in several sessions which included one on ‘Being God’s microphone’, one of Saint Romero’s teachings, which was led by Blessed Trinity’s Mission Leaders from Year 7-11.

“Saint Oscar Romero challenges us all to speak up for people who are voiceless and today we have been thinking about how we will do this in our schools, our local communities and the wider world,” said Associate Assistant Head Mrs Thompson.

Sacred Heart pupil Esmee, from Year 6, said: “We made a microphone and talked about Saint Oscar Romero. It’s been a fun day, something different.”

The day finished with Bishop Arnold celebrating Mass.
