So we’re back in week 2 and you’ll notice that the sites main colour has turned back to green. This is because we’ve entered back into “Ordinary time” in the church. It’ll only be like this for a few weeks until we start the season of Lent in February. Just because it’s “Ordinary” doesn’t mean it’s boring – it is still the start of a brand new year and there’s lots of exciting stuff going on this term.

With that in mind the word of the week is ‘Community’. This is a great time of year to think about how we can give and live as part of our school community. It’s made up of nearly 1500 people all of whom have a direct impact on the lives of each other. This week we’re going to think about how we live as part of our school community – what it gives us and what we can give back. It’s a time to reflect on how lucky we are to have amazing people around us and a time to realise that we can be those amazing people for someone else.

We’ve also got out House AoW’s this week. These will take place on Thursday and Friday and as usual, they’ll be a chance to look at the idea of community in a different way. They’ll also be a chance to see just how we’re all getting on and how we can get involved this coming term.

(As you will only be in form 3 times this week work through the prayer resources in order!)

Prayer Resource 3

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.
