During the World Meeting of Families in June, we listened to an online assembly about Celebrating Family Love. We wrote a prayer as a class for our families.
Year 1 Prayer for Families
We pray for our families
and ask that you keep them
safe and protect them.
Help us to love each other
and be kind.
May we walk in your ways.
On Saint Patrick's Day we attended Mass and learned about the life of Saint Patrick. Saint Patrick forgave the pirates that kidnapped him and took him away from his family. He used a shamrock to teach people about the Holy Trinity. We listened to the prayer of Saint Patrick.
We wrote our own prayers of sorrow and used them in a prayer service about forgiveness.
We thought about things we are curious about and how we can be active for the good of others in our daily lives.
The eyes of the world are upon us. We learned about COP26 and the important meeting world leaders are having in November to discuss climate change. We remembered how Saint Francis calls us all to look after the earth and creation.
Thank you for new beginnings.
Thank you that we can start afresh this year.
Help us to achieve the things that we hope for in this coming year.
Give us courage and strength.
