The word of the week is Saints!

The Saints are a fascinating part of our church history and tradition. A saint is one of those men or women who in their life, and often their death, have set us an example of how to live a life for God.

Saints are ordinary people who have inspired others, followed in Jesus’ footsteps and stood up for their faith. We all have the potential to be saints!…They were not all perfect. Often they made bad choices and mistakes in their lives before turning back to God. They give hope to us all that we can be better people and that, one day, we may become saints ourselves!

The word of the week is Saints! On Sunday we celebrated the feast of All Saints Day. This is a very special feast in the Catholic Church’s Liturgical calendar where we remember and celebrate all the holy men and women who have died and are believed to be heaven with God.

We all have the potential to become saints! Saints are ordinary people who have followed in Jesus’ footsteps and stood up for their faith.

    Last year, we created this video to show how we had named all of our buildings after Saints’. We also talked a bit about who our favourite Saints’ were and why.

      Why do we pray to Saints?

       

       

      Volunteer to read today’s scripture:

      A reading from the first letter of St Paul to Timothy,

      Do not let anyone look down on you because you are young, but be an example for the believers in your speech, your conduct, your love, faith, and purity.

      The Word of the Lord

      Thanks be to God
