Alleluia!
We are now in Eastertide and that means it’s time to party! We celebrate the season of Easter from Easter Sunday all the way until Pentecost and one of the ways in which we celebrate the season is by using a word that we don’t use during Lent – Alleluia! The word simply means “praise the Lord” and it’s a reminder that at this time of year we should be rejoicing and celebrating that Jesus is risen.

Think this week about what makes you want to celebrate and think about how you can show the world the joy of the resurrection.

We start with the Sign of the Cross.

Spend some time discussing what you did over the Easter holidays and what you would like to ‘Praise the Lord’ for!

We end by making the Sign of the Cross.

This season of Eastertide is all about celebrating the Resurrection and celebrating all of the things that God has given us. God was willing to give His only Son to us and He suffered a painful death to free us from sin. There is a lot to be grateful for when we know that we are cared for and loved so deeply!

Eastertide is a time of great joy, happiness and praise. By saying our word of the week this week ‘Alleluia!’ we are offering thanks and praise to God. Watch this video to see the difference that an unexpected thank you can make.

Spend some time reflecting on the things that you are grateful for in your own life.

Are there things that you take for granted?

Do the important people in your life know that they are appreciated?

How often do you take the time to stop and thank someone for their time and effort towards you?

Use the comments box below to give a shout out to the people that you are grateful for and want to say thank you to. Make this an opportunity to thank and give praise to God just as St Paul describes:

I thank my God for you every time I think of you

Philippians 1:3

Today is the second Diocesan Day of the Eucharist in Schools.

Once again, everyone will have the opportunity to visit the Chapel throughout the morning and to spend some time in Adoration, sitting in the presence of Jesus who is present in the Blessed Sacrament.

This morning, Registration is extended to 9:15am so that we can tune into the live broadcast from Bishop Patrick at 9:00am who will prepare us for the day ahead.

You can start by scrolling down the page and watching the videos which help us to understand what Adoration is and help us to reflect on our last Diocesan Day of the Eucharist.

Bishop Patrick will go Live at 9am! Refresh the page if the video does not play automatically.

The Bishop would like us to join in with his broadcast during the final prayer, the words are:

O Sacrament Most Holy,

O Sacrament Divine,

All praise and all thanksgiving

Be every moment Thine.

Please leave your own comments and reflections on our last Day of the Eucharist at the bottom of the page!

Please make your way to the Chapel between now and lunchtime to spend some time in Adoration and to make the most of this very special opportunity during Eastertide.

As always we take time to listen to a reading of Sunday’s Gospel to help us reflect on what God is saying to us.

This week’s Gospel reading comes from Luke’s Gospel and tells us what happens next after the two disciples who had been travelling on the road to Emmaus saw Jesus and recognised him in the breaking of bread.

Luke 24:35-48

Have a think about how you will show others your faith. How will you fulfill Jesus’ calling to you in the scriptures?

Lord, help us to understand the scriptures and to recognise you among the people that we meet today. Amen

We end by making the Sign of the Cross.
