Welcome back everyone! This week’s word of the week is Epiphany. The Epiphany is the 12th day of Christmas and is celebrated on January 6th each year, marking the end of the Christmas season. The day celebrates the ‘Epiphany’, the revelation of Jesus at the Messiah! The feast of the Epiphany commemorates the visit of the wise men, who worshiped baby Jesus and brought him three gifts after his birth.

Notices

  •  Welcome back everyone! We hope you all had a great Christmas break, with a chance to relax with friends and family and spend time in prayer as we celebrate the birth of Jesus and the light Jesus brings to our life. Let’s start 2020 with a clean slate and in a positive way by working hard, being kind and doing the right thing!
  • Faith in Action continues this Wednesday (7th Jan) after school- if you weren’t able to join us for the last session or if you have any questions come and see Ruth and Joe in the Chapel!
  • Sixth former’s who are interested in going to Lourdes or who have already said they would like to go on the pilgrimage to Lourdes, please collect an initial first letter (if you haven’t already) and hand it into the Chapel as soon as you can! If you have any questions and want to find out more about the pilgrimage come down to the Chapel! All year 12 and 13’s are welcome!

As we know, the wise men brought gifts when they visited Jesus. They brought gold, frankincense and myrrh, all of which had different meanings that we’ll discover later on in the week.

Below is a list of words, all of which are gifts in a non-traditional way. As a form, have a discussion about which three words you think best describe the gifts that you can offer to others and then comment them below. If you have words that aren’t on the list, feel free to add them in too. Let’s see what gifts our school can offer as a whole!

Love

Laughter

Care

Empathy

Sympathy

Peace

Comfort

Joy

Calm

Respect

The Magi were incredibly clever men. They could read the stars and navigate by them. However, they didn’t have all the knowledge in the world and had to have some help. Sometimes we think we know what’s happening but we aren’t really aware. You might have seen the video below, but today focus especially the wise men and the differences within tradition.

When the three wise men went to see Jesus, they were supposed to report back to Herod. But when they finally met him, they saw something in him and the angel appeared to them in a dream and told them not to visit Herod on the way back. How often do we look at people and realise that they’re not what we thought they were, or not what we had been told that they were? Do we need to learn not to judge a book by its cover? How can we be more like Jesus and love one another? Listen to the song below, and reflect on these questions today.
