Over the last few weeks each class has visited Church for an Advent Reflection with Fr John and Linda. Children and staff have enjoyed this special time together, reflecting on the wonderful gift of Jesus at Christmas.
In October, Pope Francis made a request for children around the world to pray for the children in war-torn countries. Following each reflection, our children have decorated little cardboard people with either prayers or key words to share the Advent message of hope and peace. These 'prayer-people' will be displayed in the Churches of St Patrick's and St Marie's over the coming weeks as we pray very specially for those who are living with the turmoil and devastation that war creates.
