RE and the Catholic life of the school

How privileged we were to Pray the Rosary together this week.

Our children joined a worldwide campaign to recite the rosary on Wednesday, October 18 for world peace, especially for children in war-torn Syria.

“One Million Children Praying the Rosary” is an annual global event organized by the international Catholic charity “Aid to the Church in Need” (ACN) to foster peace and understanding. The intention for this year’s campaign is children in Syria.

We have had a wonderfully successful harvest this year!
A huge thank you to all our families for your support and generosity. We managed to fill sixteen carrier bags of food to send to the Samaritans, and collect £60 to send to CAFOD for our friend around the world.

April is the month where Pope Francis has asked us to pray for young people all around the world, particularly thinking about ways in which they can fulfil their potential and follow their true vocations.

Attached here is a powerpoint you can share as a family and a document with ideas you can enjoy at home together!

St Ignatius’ Catholic Primary School prides itself on the Religious Education all children receive. We respect the diverse faith community which we serve and endeavour to bring all our pupils closer to God through a comprehensive catholic education and a commitment to living out our mission statement of ‘living, playing and praying together’.

Teachers deliver exciting lessons through the ‘Come and See’ programme of study alongside responses to the liturgical year. Each term we celebrate the work undertaken in RE with a celebration and worship assembly: our first one of 2017 is on February 3rd – we hope all our families can attend!

Please read the letter attached to know what we will be enjoying this term and to see how you can help enhance your child’s spiritual journey along the way.
