Catholic Education

Show The Love

In the week commencing 5th July, the whole school has been celebrating a ‘Show the Love’ week. This has been a special opportunity for classes to reflect on how to care for our common home and how to care for our neighbour as inspired by Pope Francis’ encyclicals, ‘Laudato Si’ and ‘Fratelli Tutti’.

Show the Love!

Our new sacred space

Following a pupil prayer questionnaire in the Spring term, a school project to update our prayer garden took place. Children contributed ideas to what they would like to see in the school prayer garden together with ideas of images for a special mosaic. These ideas were then developed into a final image by a talented local artist Simone Kay resulting in a beautiful mosaic for the whole school to appreciate when they visit the prayer garden.

Our Lent adventure!

In ‘Fratelli Tutti’, a recent encyclical written by Pope Francis, Pope Francis calls on us to take action to help our neighbours, just like in the parable, ‘The Good Samaritan’. At St Joseph’s, we will be taking on this challenge, to ‘bend down and help someone get up’ by supporting the charity, Catholic Children’s Society (CCS) and setting ourselves a daily challenge to help someone in Lent.

Children will share how they have achieved their 'One Word' throughout Lent during our virtual collective worships and in their lessons. Year 1 and Year 4 have shared their beautiful 'One Word' class displays below.

Words from Pope Francis

 

Jesus might grant to each one of us the grace of meeting Him every day, to knowing and to specifically recognise that He walks with us in every moment. He is our companion along the pilgrim way

- Pope Francis, April 26th 2020

 

At this time of great uncertainty, it is important that, as Catholics, we don’t lose sight of the solace found through participation in the rich tapestry of prayer and liturgical traditions within the Church. The websites in the document below may be of some help to you at home, to join together in worship and prayer as a family.
