Our Visit to St Ignatius Church

In R.E, we visited St Ignatius Church. While we were there, we found lots of interesting objects, such as a statue, a cross, pictures of Jesus and flowers. We learnt that the lectern is used to put the bible on and pews are special seats to sit on. Father Andrew talked us about Jesus and why Christians visit a church.
