Community

This week we think about the people in our lives. Our community changes and grows all the time and every person who comes in brings something special and unique. We’ve not seen those in our communities for so long and being back together helps us to be grateful for those around us. How can you look out for those in our community who we sometimes overlook – how can we show them they important and valued?

If you have time, why not re-watch one of our school music videos that the staff created during lockdown? They are perfect examples of the wonderful community that we have here at school.

This week’s word of the week is ‘COMMUNITY’.

Normally we would watch a video that describes our word of the week on a Monday, but today we’re going to watch a video from The Briars.

Our diocesan youth centre did a great job over lock down, making sure that although we may have been physically apart we still felt part of a community.

The video below was shown at the start of our Schools Mass during lock down, watch it to remind yourselves what we got up to as a diocese!

A community can come in all shapes and sizes, a faith community, school community, family, sports group, friendship circle. What did you do during lock down so that you still felt part of your communities?  Leave your comments below.

Today we are thinking about our Community and the communities we are a part of. Whilst watching the video spend some time writing in your planner or on paper your thoughts on the questions that appear, and what a community means to you.

Listen to this song as you are coming in, and once everyone is sat down fade it out and start the Act of Worship straightaway.

A body has many parts, but all of its parts form one body.’

CAFOD is a charity that helps to support others in poverty. It’s a part of the Catholic body helping the other parts to function in our ever changing world. We would like you to watch the video below that talks more about the charity and how it is a community. Afterwards, discuss how we can provide support for them this year as a community.

As well as a school community, we are also part of the Our Lady of Lourdes Trust.  Lets say the Hail Mary together now and know that all the students in our sister secondary schools will be saying this prayer at the same time. There is beautiful power in prayer.

Hail Mary, Full of Grace, The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of death. Glory Be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.

Amen

We spend time now to listen to Sunday’s Gospel. Vicki, the chaplain from All Saints in Mansfield, is reading our scripture and explaining it today.

 

Have you ever been forgiven?  How did it make you feel?
