On Wednesday 18 December, Bishop Bill attended a morning Christmas concert at St Benedict's Primary School, Edgeworth and spoke to students, parents and parishioners about the meaning of Christmas and the joy he takes from the occasion.
Principal of St Benedict's, Mark Hornby-Howell, introduced the Bishop, Director of Schools Ray Collins and Sugarloaf Parish Priest Rev Peter Rees before starting the proceedings, which featured singing and performances by every year group. The crowd was also entertained by the Vietnamese Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, who work in the parish and at the school. The Sisters sang 'What Child Is This?' in Vietnamese alongside Fr Peter Hien. The full video of this concert is available below.
