Pope Francis has declared that 2025 will be a special Jubilee Year for the Catholic Church, with the theme 'Hope'. As a way to get ready and prepare his Holiness, Pope Francis and dedicated 2024 a year of Prayer. As a school we are following Pope Francis' directions to get 'back to basics' during this year by focusing on the Lord's prayer. 

 

Please support of work in school by praying the 'Our Father' together at home: 

 

Our Father, Who art in heaven,

Hallowed be Thy Name.

Thy Kingdom come,

Thy Will be done,

On earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day, our daily bread,

And forgive us our trespasses,

as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.

Amen

 

Attached is a resource from the Archdiocese of Birmingham to help you get to understand the Our Father in more detail.

Mission Rosary in May (7.5.24)

The staff and children are praying the Mission Rosary in May, as it is traditional to consider May to be Mary's month. We will use the Mission Rosary which is has different coloured beads that are colour-coded with colours linked to a decade for each continent. We pray simply and in solidarity with our brothers and sisters throughout the world. It’s a wonderful way to think about the world around us and gain an understanding of what it means to belong to the Universal Church.

 

Please pray the Rosary at home to. Here are some useful resources to help:

Litter picking in the local area (8.5.24)

 

A lovely message from a parent today: 

I just wanted to email to let you know that the environment message at school has really stuck with my daughter in particular recently. Although we try to do our bit at home, she has been running around the garden shouting "I'm an environment superhero!" while watering the plants, and I have to give full credit on that part to school! 

 

Here are both children on their litter pick this evening. It's not why they did it, but it was lovely that a couple of people took the time to come over and say well done to them. It was only a quick session, but they manage to completely fill a bag to bursting! 

Brilliant work. What wonderful parents we have!

We are praying the Rosary in May (10.5.24)

 

Please find below a guide from Year 6 on how to pray the Rosary.
