Spirituality              Sunday 6th Sunday – 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Morning reflection is issued every week by our Chaplain and is available on the school’s website:

On Monday afternoon's assembly Mrs Norbury was delighted to introduce the 25 members of

the new Y6 Chaplaincy Team to the Junior School.  They have already been busy helping

with displays, being envoys - informing the classes of prayer initiatives etc., helping to lead

prayers and all with a smile, following the example of St. Therese of the Child Jesus, whose

feast day was on Tuesday, in doing little acts of kindness with great love.

 Pope Francis has declared October 2019 to be an Extraordinary Month of Mission and tells

us that "Prayer is the first 'missionary work' - the first!  The first which every Christian can and should carry out.  It is also the most effective although it cannot be 'measured'".  We are 'Baptised and Sent'.  During October, we will be praying the Rosary every Thursday lunchtime, using Missio Rosaries and with the specific intention for all of us who proclaim the Good News of the Gospel.  

Table Talk Topic for this week – Should you be made to be polite? Just a reminder, that we have a Prayer intention book in the Reception area of each school. Please feel free to write your intentions in as you wish. Thank you to those who have added to it. Please take the time to read it when visiting the school.
