‘Growing in love, in the spirit of Christ, for the benefit of all’

RE

Our Trust Prayer

 

God Our Father,

Give us strength so that, guided by Our Lady’s example,

we can have the courage to say yes to you.

Help us to love like she loved, have faith like she had

and follow Jesus’ example in all that we do.

Inspire in all of us a sense of togetherness, so that we can use

the gifts you have given us for the good of all in our community

and bring support and healing to those less fortunate than ourselves.

We ask Our Lady to guide us, just as she guided St Bernadette,

as we seek to bring Jesus’ message of love

and forgiveness to others.

We ask this through Jesus Christ, your Son, Our Lord.

Amen

 

Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us.

People

This topic is all about the people in our life, our family, God's family and the family of our school and parish. We will be looking at who makes up our family and who makes up Jesus' family tree, learning about their lives and why they are important. 

 

Called

This topic is about how we are Called by God to serve. We will be learning about when people are called and for what they are called to do. 

 

Prayer and Reflection

 

Father, creator of all,

you ‘ordered the earth’ to bring forth life
and crowned its goodness by

creating family life.

Teach us the beauty of human love,
show us the value of family life

and help us to live in peace
with everyone.
Amen.

 

Gift

Our new RE topic is Gift. Gifts, given and received, are a sign and expression of love. During this time of Advent we think about the Gift of Jesus and what that means to us as a community. Advent is a time when we appreciate the love in our lives and prepare to celebrate love becoming a reality in the person of Jesus. Christians at Christmas celebrate the gift of Jesus, given by God as a sign and expression of God’s love. Giving and receiving reflects the truth that all life is given by God and life is given meaning through the gift of Jesus.

 

Prayer and Reflection

 

Today a Saviour is born!

In the stillness of the night God enters human history

through the birth of his only Son.

He is our peace and hope.

In him we praise God for his

goodness to us in giving us so great a gift. Amen.
