This week’s ‘Word of the Week’ is Trust. It’s a word we use a lot but in this year of Mercy it takes on a special new focus. Part of the Year of Mercy’s mission is to bring people back to the sacrament of Reconciliation or ‘confession’ as we call it. This is something we offer in school, every Lent and and it can often be very scary. It’s scary because it involves putting your trust, not only in the priest, but in God. We have to trust in his forgiveness and trust in ourselves if we are to truly understand mercy and this week you’re going to have the opportunity to do just that!

Last week the Year 12’s going to Lourdes put their trust in you and you delivered! We needed an extra push and you responded with an amazing 198042 steps to help get us to the 2 million step target. Sometimes you need a bit of help from those around you and we were able to trust in you to help us out!

Don’t forget about ‘1000Hours’ It’s a challenge for us a school to reach 1000 hours of prayer and we’re going to do that by giving over just 2 minutes of each day. One minute before lunch and one minute at the end of the day. In this time it’s an opportunity to pray – however you want for anything you want. If everybody in our community does 2 minutes between now an Easter – it’ll add up to…. 1000 Hours! That’s pretty awesome! If you need some ideas for prayers you can click here!

Big Question

Saying sorry to God is enough – we don’t need to go to confession. 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

Reconciliation is available all week in the chapel and it’s great chance to find God’s mercy in your life. It can help you feel better about things and help you find a way to move forward from the things that are weighing you down. It can however be a bit scary – so to take some of the mystery out of it –  have a look at this.

Think about whether you would find confession a good thing to do.

Lord, help us to experience your mercy. Amen.

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.

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.

This video has just been uploaded so refresh the page about 8:45am today and it should update!

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