Our Worship

Crowning of Mary, Monday 22nd May

 

Thy Kingdom Come.

Join the global wave of prayer between 25th May - 4th June. Catholics will join with Christians around the world to pray that their friends, families and neighbours will come to know Jesus. You may like to pray the Novena.

 " We can say that God’s heart is touched by our intercession, yet in reality he is always there first.  What our intercession achieves is that his power,  his love and his faithfulness are shown ever more  clearly in the midst of the people."  (Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium 283)

 

Epiphany

The school celebrated Epiphany on Friday 6th January 2017,  in a beautifully decorated SS John Fisher and Thomas More Church. Father Richard reminded us that we should all use the gifts God has given us to be gifts to those around us, our school, our families and or community.

In October we celebrated the Holy Rosary and part of our celebration was to learning a sung version of the Hail Mary.

The school will next celebrate Mass for

Remembrance day prayers 

 

Remembrance Sunday falls on the Sunday nearest Armistice Day, 11 November, which marks the end of the First World War. On this day are remembered all those who gave their lives for their country, all who suffered and died through acts of war and those who were left behind to grieve and mourn. In England and Wales one Mass for the Dead may celebrated on this Sunday.

Year 6 have been studying World War 1 in class and created some art work to help them consider what it would have been like to serve as a soldier. Year 6 art work.  

Prayer

O God, merciful and strong, who crush wars and cast down the proud, be pleased to banish violence swiftly from our midst and to wipe away all tears, so that we may all truly deserve to be called your children.
