Before we celebrate our Trust Mass altogether, we invite you to write and decorate prayers of healing using the attached hand template, or you can create your own template! Hand Template – healing Prayer – Olol Mass
In your classrooms, spend a moment thinking about, and discussing, the people who might need healing in their lives during this time e.g. the homeless, people who are grieving, those who are suffering from illness, the lonely, the isolated. Using the hand template, spend some time writing a prayer of healing for the people you have reflected on in your classroom discussions. You may want to create one prayer as a class or have each student write their own individual prayer intentions. After you have written the prayers, perhaps you could get out some colours and decorate your prayers with images or patterns linked to the theme of Our Lady of Lourdes and Healing e.g. rosary beads, roses, water, the grotto, Our Lady. These prayer hands can then be cut out and used to create a prayer focus in your classrooms before our Feast Day Mass begins and/or be used for a school display!
