Adoration and Benediction

This half term we continued learning about Adoration and Benediction in school. The children had a visit from Father Keith to explain to us in more depth. He even showed us a monstrance and dressed Frankie up the exact same way he has to dress when he is leading a Corpus Christi procession. At the end of the assembly, Father Keith invited children to share their Eucharistic prayers with the rest of the school.

Adoremus Celebration

Today, at Westminster Cathedral we joined in an Adoremus celebration with other schools in our diocese to mark the culmination of our Eucharist Journey over the past year with great joy and thanksgiving.

OLSJ ‘Sacred Space’ project winners

For the Easter break, all classes were set a task to design their own Sacred Spaces. Year 1 and 2 had to design their own Catholic Church. Year 3 and 4 has to design a ‘shared sacred space’ for Christians and Jews.  Year 5 and 6 had to design a ‘shared sacred space’ for a hospital, airport, prison or shopping and consider how this could accommodate Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus and non-religious people.

Below are the winners from each class, who won a rosary bead. Well done to everyone that created a space. They thought and effort was remarkable.
