Celebrating the end of the Year of Mercy
On Friday 25th November 2016, we attended a Mass said by the Bishop to celebrate the end of the Year of Mercy. Although the Year of Mercy has now ended, the Bishop reminded us that our work has only just begun. We shall continue to show mercy, forgiveness and compassion to others throughout our lives.
Thank you very much to two of our Pupil Lay-Chaplains, Kirsty and Chris, for representing our School so wonderfully.
Meet the Pupil Lay-Chaplains...
Our job is a very important one!
We look after the most precious thing in our school – our faith. We are messengers of God’s love!
We are entrusted with the responsibility of giving joyful witness of Christ in our school.
We meet regularly to discuss exciting ways we can encourage the faith of everyone in our school. If you have any ideas for fundraising or activities, please let one of your Pupil Chaplains know and they can present your ideas at their next meeting.
Throughout the year, we plan and create opportunities for prayer and worship in classes and throughout the whole school. We think about the welfare of others in our community and the wider world. We take turns to prepare prayers around a special theme for our Monday assemblies.
Here are some of the things we have developed so far in our school…
