Year 1 Tobit Class Mass

Today we celebrated Tobit Class Mass with our parents at church. Some year 6 children from the Chaplaincy Team also came to support us at church. We sang By the Rivers of Babylon for our Responsorial Psalm and sang He’s got the Whole World in His Hands after the Gospel.

Phase Liturgy- International Day of Peace

Today is International Day of Peace, and this was the theme for our liturgy this afternoon. Miss Hutchings spoke about the importance of peace in a world where some people struggle to live lives free of conflict and struggle. We thought about Jesus as peacemaker and role model and what we can do in our daily lives to help create peace around us.

Here were some of the prayers that were shared:

Christ has no body now on earth but yours, no feet but yours.
Yours are the eyes –
through which his love looks out to the world.
Yours are the feet –
with which he goes about doing good.
Yours are the hands –
with which he blesses people now.
– Saint Teresa of Avila

God of peace,
We pray for peace around the world.
Where there is hatred, sow seeds of calm.
Where there is destruction, help us to rebuild.
Where children are crying, bring an end to tears.
Shelter your peoples and protect them.
Guide them and keep them from harm.

International Day of Peace

Today is International Day of Peace. For our Phase Liturgies this week we have learned why we have International Day of Peace.

In our school, along with people all over the world, we are gathering together to celebrate the International World day of Peace. In order to do this, we gather around the person who brings together all the nations of the world, as one family – Jesus, the Light of the world. Jesus said to his disciples, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give you. A peace the world cannot give, this is my gift to you.”

We responded to the following questions:

How can my eyes, the way I look at people, bring peace and love?

How can I use my feet to do good and bring happiness and peace?

How can I use my hands to bless and help and bring peace to those around me?
