Holy Thursday

'I have set you an example' John 13:15

On the eve of his crucifixion, Jesus showed radical humility by washing his disciple's feet. Like Christian clergy around the world, Archbishop Malcolm McMahon, the Archbishop of Liverpool washed the feet of 12 students from two Liverpool schools at the Mandatum on Holy Thursday, in a ritual which sets out to remind us that loving Christ means serving others.

The College community was represented by: Head boy, Ellis, Dillon, Tom, Jenny, Rachael and Megan. The College recently received this communication:

Dcn Paul Mannings
Adviser for Secondary Religious Education
Archdiocese of Liverpool

Dear Mr Hicks

On behalf of the Cathedral I write to thank the community of Archbishop Beck Catholic College for assisting us at the Mandatum on Holy Thursday. Quite frankly it was a joy to meet Ellis, Megan, Jenny, Rachael, Tom and Dillon not least because taking part meant so much to them.

Best regards


Dcn Paul Mannings

Speaking after the event, Megan, a member of the 6th Form said "it was such an honour and an evening I will long remember".
