Holy Week - The Last Supper

 

Today, Year 5 have reminded us of the Last Supper that Jesus had with his disciples, and its importance to us as followers of Jesus. During this special meal, Jesus told his disciples that he would always be with us, and every time we celebrate the Eucharist we remember this moment and we receive him in our hearts.

 

Holy Week - Palm Sunday

 

Today it has been Year 4's turn to guide us through a very important moment in Jesus's life: the day when he entered Jerusalem, being greeted by people waving palm branches. As a school, we have come together with our palm branches to welcome Jesus into our hearts and to show our willingness to learn from and follow him.

 

 

 

Holy Week - Jesus anointed at Bethany

 

Today we have began the celebration of Holy Week at St Saviour’s. Year 3 have led a fantastic assembly based on Matthew’s account of the anointing of Jesus, through which we learnt the importance of showing kindness and unconditional love to those around us. 
 

First Forgiveness and First Holy Communion

 

The preparation for the children at St Saviour’s to participate in the sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion for the first time has begun. The children have prepared their special boxes and have begun to create some lovely memories with their families, which they then share with the rest of the group. They are feeling excited and joyful knowing that they will soon receive Jesus. Please, keep them in your thoughts and prayers!
 

Celebration of Mass in Year 6

 

Today, on the feast of St Patrick, Year 6 have put into practice everything they learnt about the Holy Mass during a celebration of the Eucharist in our school. We were very fortunate to have among us a member of St Saviour’s RC Church, and Fr Edmund, who very kindly explained us all the things about the celebration of the Mass we wouldn’t necessarily know, and the children enjoyed reading passages of Scripture which they had carefully selected as well as praying about all the people and things that are important to them.

 

 

Ash Wednesday

 

Today we have come together in Key Stages to celebrate Ash Wednesday as we begin the season of Lent. We thank Deacon Paul for sharing this afternoon with us in school, and hold our community in our prayers as we prepare for Holy Week.

 

We have talked about how Lent is a time to give, not to give up, and how we are going to give ourselves to others in order to prepare our hearts and turn them to God.

 

Whole School Liturgical Prayer

 

Today we have finally gathered as a whole school to share the Good News of Jesus. We are very grateful that we have finally been able to get together and learn from Jesus that we shouldn’t judge others, especially when we also make mistakes sometimes.

 

Dear God,

Please, help us be kind to one another

And not to judge others by their mistakes,

but rather think, “What can I do to help them?”

Helps us also be the best version of ourselves

so we can help build your Kingdom.

Amen

 

KS2 Liturgical Prayer

 

KS2 were delighted to finally be able to gather and share a time of prayer and reflection in the hall. During our liturgical prayer today, we reflected on how to show generosity towards others using the words of Jesus as a source of inspiration. We talked about caring for those who are sick, sharing our things with others, making sure we keep company to those who need it, and finally thought and talked about how to show gratitude for all those who care for us and all the things we have received from God.

 

 

 

Visit from Fr Edmund and Fr Humphrey

 

Today we have officially met Fr Edmund and Fr Humphrey, who will accompany us during our faith journey at St Saviour's. It has been lovely to meet them, and we can't wait to get to know them a bit better!

 

We keep Fr Edmund and Fr Humphrey in our prayers, as they begin their ministry in Ellesmere Port. Please, Jesus, look after them and hold them in your hands as they share your Good News with our community. Amen.

 

  

Remembrance Day

 

Today we remember the sacrifices made by thousands of brave people who risked and sometimes gave their lives in war, so that we may live in peace. 

 

Dear Lord,

Let us remember the people who have sacrificed their lives,

and those who still live in war zones.

Grant us peace, teach us peace; guide our steps in the way of peace.

Open our eyes and our hearts, and give us the courage to say:

"Never again war!"; "With war everything is lost".

Instill in our hearts the courage to bring peace to our world.

Amen

 

    

 

Diwali and The Ramayana

 

Today we have been learning about the festival of Diwali through drama. We have performed the story of the Ramayana: an ancient epic poem which follows Prince Rama's quest to rescue his beloved wife Sita from the clutches of Ravana with the help of an army of monkeys. It has been truly inspiring to learn about other faiths, and the children have really enjoyed using body language to perform this incredible story!
