The month of October is dedicated to the Holy Rosary. Don’t worry if you don’t know what that means! The Rosary is a special form of prayer in the Catholic Church that’s been around for over a 1000 years. It’s a special prayer to Jesus – through his mother Mary and it helps us understand our lives a bit better by thinking about different parts of the life of Jesus and praying a special set of prayers.

We’re going to think a lot about Mary this week and what part shes plays in our faith and our church. She is an amazing example of what love in action really means and hopefully we can bring that to life in our school this week. We will also be offering the opportunity to pray the Rosary every Monday in October in the Chapel at Lunch.

Monday/Tuesday

We begin with the Sign of the Cross

It’s time for our “Word of the Week” watch the video above and check out for the notices at the bottom of the screen – don’t forget to leave your comments below!

After the video above has finished, spend a few moments to think about something you should notice more around school and what you can do about it.

Lord, help us to notice those in need of love and support in our school. Amen.

Why do we worship Mary in the Catholic Church? We despite what it may look like – we don’t! Check out this video – it tells you a bit about how we see Mary in the Church.

Try to think of something you want to pray for and say a Hail Mary as a form to offer your prayer to God.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Thursday

We begin with the Sign of the Cross

This whole term is about exploring who we really are. Often we define ourselves by the people we associate with but do we really let people be who they want to be??

This week use the Key Process of “Role Play” to debate the following scenario:

A person doesn’t feel comfortable being with a group of friends but is worried about being criticised for hanging around with different people.

Lord, help us to remember to see you in all people. Amen.

Friday

We begin with the Sign of the Cross

As you know, we are going to use the Scripture from this Sunday’s Gospel to reflect on every Friday. If you are in KS 3/4 You can use your planners to to help you understand the scripture.

This year we want to bring the Word of God to life on a Friday morning to help us reflect and understand scripture a little bit better, so with the help of our school community a different person each week will read our Gospel and share what it means to them. Use your planners to help you discuss and explore the story further.

Lord, help us to know who we are. Amen.

We finish with the Sign of the Cross.
