In our final liturgy Class 5 shared the moving story of
The Three Trees.
We also took the time to remember the promises we made at the start of Lent with our Lenten branches.
The children in Class Two led the whole school in a Lenten liturgy encouraging us to keep our Lent promises and be more like Jesus.
During Lent the Travelling Cross and resources will be shared around our school community. The bags are being sent home with different children each evening so that everyone will have the opportunity to take part over the coming weeks.
When the bag is in your home please take some time to read through and discuss the resources with your child. If you need and further support please speak to a member of staff.
In addition to the Travelling Crosses each of our classrooms have a Lenten branch as a focal point to our prayer areas.
The idea is that children, staff, parents and visitors can write down their promises and intentions for Lent and these can be hung on the branch.
During Holy Week the branches and intentions will form part of our final Liturgy.
