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
Fr Brian came to school to help us celebrate the feast of the Baptism of the Lord, which was really special because one of our Y3 children was being baptised that weekend! We thought about our Baptismal promises and how we can live these out in our daily lives.
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. This year the Pupil Chaplains led each year group in praying the Stations of the Cross. It was a very spiritual afternoon in which the children engaged with the Lord's Passion and deepened their understanding of his love and sacrifice for us.
