We began Spring Term with a liturgy celebrating the Epiphany! We thought about the awe and excitement the Wise Men must have felt and we gave thanks for our safe, enjoyable Christmas holidays!
Baptism of the Lord
The whole school travelled to St. John Southworth Church to celebrate the feast of the Baptism of the Lord.We thought about our Baptismal promises and how we can live these out in our daily lives. The children participated in all parts of the Mass and it was great to share this with so many parishioners and parents.
The whole school and parishioners celebrated the start of Lent with a beautiful Ash Wednesday Mass. We are wearing our ashes to remind us how we are called to grow closer to God during Lent.
The school have made Lenten promises and are working hard to keep them, but understand that it doesn't matter if we break them, because God always helps us to start again.
The children in all classes learn about and reflect on Holy Week each year. Usually, the Pupil Chaplains led each year group in praying the Stations of the Cross. It is a very spiritual afternoon in which the children engage with the Lord's Passion and deepen their understanding of his love and sacrifice for us.
This year, our Year 2 children led the school in a Stations of the Cross liturgy.
