Thank you to SS Peter and Paul Catholic Primary school for our card to celebrate Our Lady of Lourdes Feast Day.
Father Sean came to visit us in class. We said a prayer together. Father put ashes on our heads in the shape of a cross. We talked about being extra good during Lent.
We celebrated our feast day by visiting the grotto beside our church. We prayed together and shared the story of when Our Lady appeared to St. Bernadette.
We wore our own clothes and had a special French snack of hot chocolate and croissants.
We went to see the crib in church. We talked about what we could see. We noticed that all the people and animals were looking at Jesus.
The Nursery children have made angels for their Christmas trees. They remind us of the angels who brought the Good News about Jesus to Mary and the shepherds.
We went into the hall for an Advent prayer service. We lit two candles on the Advent wreath and prayed for peace. We listened to the bible story about the birth of Jesus. We sang ‘Stay Awake, Be Ready’ to remind us to prepare for the coming of Jesus. Do you know what the third candle represents?
We had a Prayer Service to reflect on the wonderful world we live in. We thanked God for the things he made - the stars, dolphins, horses, dogs, flowers, families and friends.
Deacon Tim came to visit us today. We said prayers together. We listened to a reading from the bible and learned that Jesus loved the little children the most.
Then Deacon Tim blessed us with holy water. He blessed the prayer table too.
