Today, some of the children from Y5 helped the parish of Our Lady's Acomb by lighting the fourth candle on the Advent wreath. This candle represents peace. Members of the Y6 chaplaincy team wrote the following prayer:
Dear Lord,
Help us to keep peace in our homes, so they will become happy and calm.
Help us to bring peace to those who are upset.
Help us to show peace to those who need refuge.
Help us to appreciate peace that surrounds us.
Amen

First Sunday in Advent

 

We start our Advent journey today!

We have our Advent wreath ready to light each week. 

Our crib is ready and waiting in joyful hope of the arrival of Our Saviour.

Our school family will be 'travelling' to Bethlehem with Mary and Joseph via our Jesse tree,

which will take us on a journey through the Old Testament to the wonderful Nativity story!

 

 

Travel with us through Advent this year!
