As we return to school after Easter the Church is still celebrating this great event. The focus of this term’s work in Religious Education is the role the Holy Spirit plays in our lives. We will be studying the three themes of Pentecost (Serving), Reconciliation (Inter-relating) and Universal Church (World).
TRANSFORMATION – We will be focusing on a celebration of the Spirit’s transforming power.
At home, you could talk about good news in your family and how you shared it. Ask your child to tell you the story of Pentecost and the work of the Holy Spirit.
FREEDOM & RESPONSIBILITY – We will be thinking about how The Commandments enable Christians to be free & responsible.
At home, you might like to talk together about times when you have forgiven and been forgiven. Discuss the importance of saying sorry. Look for opportunities for forgiveness and reconciliation in the day to day life of the family.
STEWARDSHIP – We will be discussing how the Church is called to the stewardship of Creation.
At home, you might like to look through a family scrapbook or photograph album of a visit to a place that is special for your family. Perhaps look at a globe or an atlas. Find a special place and pray for the people of that country. Discuss how we can look after our world and encourage your child to support our neighbours, near and far.
