We focussed last week on the question – Who is my neighbour? The simple answer was that ‘everyone is’, but the difficult truth is that it means we have a responsibility to each any every person to show God’s love and mercy. This brings us nicely to this weeks ‘Word of the Week’ – Commitment.

Commitment is about being faithful – to our relationships, to our faith and to each other. It often requires that we give of ourselves and put other people first and this can be challenging! As we continue this Jubilee Year of Mercy, let’s think this week about how we can stay committed, stay strong and stay faithful to what and who we believe in.

The ‘Word of the Week’

If you’ve still not made your form door a door of Mercy yet then make a sign and put it up! Also, as you heard in the video, take some time today to praise and celebrate the people you sit next to today. It’s easier to show to love to others who need it if we are empowered and inspired by people showing love to us!

Big Question

Failure to succeed is a result of a failure to show commitment. Discuss!

Express your thoughts in the comments box below.

Each day you’ll be able to see what other people are thinking in the other forms and have a chance to respond with your thoughts/comments. Come back to the discussion each morning if you can!

We begin with the Sign of the Cross

We are three weeks into January. How are those new year’s resolutions going?!  Commitment is about seeing things through – about keeping your promises. When we look to God we see someone who keeps his promises – but can we be the same.

Watch this:

Think about the promises you make every day – do you stick to them.

How can these words above inspire you to be more faithful and committed?

imagesForm time AoW should always start and end with the Sign of the Cross.

Each day when you’ve finished your discussion/activities spend a few moments in silence to think about the day ahead.

If anybody has anything or anyone they would like to pray for then don’t be afraid to share this with everyone before your end your form time AoW.

You might even want to create a prayer box that you can put intentions into each week if you don’t feel like saying it out loud. 


Forgiveness-LargeWe begin with the Sign of the Cross

This whole term is about Networks and how we connect with those around us.

This week use the Key Process of “Put yourself on the line” to debate the following statement.

A real friend should always be forgiven no matter what they do.

Lord, help us to understand how we connect with other people and to form positive and healthy relationships. Amen.

We finish with the Sign of the Cross


Word Association

We begin with the Sign of the Cross

As you know, we are going to use the Scripture from this Sunday’s Gospel to reflect on every Friday. If you are in KS 3/4 You can use your planners to to help you understand the scripture.

This year we want to bring the Word of God to life on a Friday morning to help us reflect and understand scripture a little bit better, so with the help of our school community a different person each week will read our Gospel and share what it means to them. Use your planners to help you discuss and explore the story further.

Lord, help us to listen to and follow your word. Amen.

We finish with the Sign of the Cross.
