After receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation, the children in Year 3 attended a retreat day to Alton Castle. It was a wonderful, fun-filled day with numerous opportunities to reflect upon their faith journey so far and to prepare for the next step…receiving the Body of Christ on our First Holy Communion day.
As Year 3 prepare to take the next step on their faith journey, they are finding out all about the Sacraments. They role played a Baptism and chose the Christian name Teresa for the baby after Saint Teresa of Calcutta. The children demonstrated the Gospel values of being active and curious as they found out about their own Baptism.
We have recently taken part in a prayer project, along with Bishop Walsh, Holy Cross and St Nicholas’ Schools. Each house group had a different theme to write a prayer about. Read our selection of prayers and look out for our Academy Prayer, produced by a selection of students from each school.
