HAPPY FIRST HOLY COMMUNION!
Congratulations to Julia and Lucasz who made their first holy communion today with children from our parish schools.
A beautiful celebration of a most special sacrament.
SPRINGTIME ONLINE SAFETY
Fr Peter Randall, the parish priest at St Wilfred’s has invited all of our families to attend one of the three attached online safety sessions. It is part of our HRSE (Human relationships and sex education) curriculum to encourage children to look after themselves online and we hope to support you, our families to do this through these sessions. There are three different venues for you to choose from.
Please find the details enclosed and we hope to see you there!
Wishing all our friends and family a happy and holy Easter.
May you find joy in the resurrection and peace in your family lives. This is a chance for us all to be renewed in God’s grace, through His sacrifice and love for us all – take the chance to be the very best you can be – living in the image and likeness of Jesus Himself!
As we plan to return to school and prepare for the birthday of the Church, please find attached the Summer 2019 Come and See letter for you to enjoy activities with your children at home.
THIS IS HOLY WEEK.
As we draw closer to Easter and the start of our renewal in Christ’s life, the children reenacted the key events for us all to be reminded of this holy time.
Y3 led us in our celebration of Palm Sunday; a joyous occasion as Jesus enters Jerusalem. Then the events of the week take a more sombre tone as Y4 remind us that Jesus washes His friends feet to show that He is the servant king before he shares with them, the Last Supper beautifully represented by Y5. Y6 took us through the stations of the cross – almost unbearably with their solemn and respectful journey to the place of the crucifixion.
The children must be highly commended for their reverence and respect during the four assemblies we had – one each morning, to mark the start of each day and remind us all of the sacrifice Jesus made for us.
Enjoy looking at the children’s work and may we wish you all a happy and holy Easter.
GIVE IT UP FOR LENT.
This year we are joining the ‘Give it up’ campaign for CAFOD to help Rabuil and his poor family in Bangladesh.
Each week we will be giving our Friday afternoons as Friday fundraisers to raise money for our friends around the world. Follow our blog to see all the exciting ways we are living out Jesus’ message of ‘love one another’.
Here is CAFODs interactive calendar to help you and your family prepare for Easter during lent.
Thank you to Mrs Fordyce, our CAFOD supporter, who came to visit us on the first day of Lent. She told us all about how we can help our brothers and sisters in Bangladesh this year.
