Celebration Mass for the work of Mission Together
On Thursday 25th January our Year 5 Prayer Council children attended a celebration Mass for the work of Mission Together. The Mass brought schools from several dioceses together to pray and reflect on the charities work. It was a lovely occasion.
Quotes from the children
"I felt calm and reminded that I was part of the Church family."
"I felt very special there and I think all the others schools did too."
"During the experience I felt happy, excited and close to God. The hot chocolate was really nice!"
"I felt relieved and hopeful because Fr Noah told us that we are all equal."
"At the charity Mass I felt like I had a very important role. I also felt like God was speaking to me."
"I felt hopeful about the Mass because of how we got to send children around the world a message."
Wintershall Travelling Nativity
On Monday 20th November we were very blessed to have Wintershall's travelling nativity come to the school field. The whole school experienced the immersive workshops with characters from the Nativity story.
Here is what some of our Prayer Council had to say about the experience:
"I liked the different, unusual smells at the Wise Men staff because it was a really fun to experience new things from Jesus' time." Sofia
"Wintershall told me a different perspective of the nativity." Maia
"I liked Wintershall because the way they made it feel like a real pilgrimage." Evie
"I learnt to respect Advent and the journey to Bethlehem." Cianna
