July 4th – today we received a letter from CAFOD, thanking us for our contribution of 170 miles to go towards the ‘Share the journey’. We were delighted to read this letter and will be following CAFOD’s totaliser closely to see if we reach Pope Francis’ goal of 26,900 miles of collaborative walking!
Dear St Ignatius’ school,
Thank you for walking around the world with us in solidarity with people forced to flee their homes.
Your miles will be added to our totaliser.
These miles are a sign of your commitment. We will share the amazing total with our government to send a powerful message that they too need to step up and protect the rights of refugees and migrants.
Please keep checking back to the totaliser see how far we’ve travelled together, and to discover new inspiring stories of the Church’s work with refugees and migrants around the world. Each time we reach a new stage on our 24,900-mile journey, we’ll share a new story, video or blog.
And please continue to remember the plight of refugees and migrants in your prayers.
Head of Campaigns, CAFOD
Today, the first day in May saw a beautiful service in honour of Our Blessed Lady. We will spend the month of May remembering her and all mothers who care for the special children at St Ignatius’.
Happy Easter to one and all,
May you find joy in the resurrection and peace in your family lives.
As we plan to return to school and prepare for the birthday of the Church, please find attached the Summer 2018 Come and See letter for you to enjoy activities with your children at home.
Happy New Year to all our friends and families,
May it be a happy, healthy and holy one for you all.
Please find attached the Spring 2018 Come and See letter for you to enjoy activities with your children at home.
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.
Please enjoy our Autumn RE newsletter outlining what we will be studying this term and how you can help your child at home.
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!
Please read the attached letter explaining how we will be deepening our children’s understanding of their faith this summer term.
In addition to the work planned above we will be celebrating EID with our Muslim friends and supporting them through the solemn period of Ramadan.
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.
