The Word of the Week is Welcome!

We want to say a massive welcome and welcome back to all of our year 7’s, year 11’s and year 12’s this week! We have been really looking forward to seeing you and welcoming you back into our school building safely.

It’s OK to feel excited, it’s OK to feel nervous, it’s OK to feel both! All of your staff are here to support you and guide you through this journey.

As we welcome back hundreds of people into our community this week and next week, think about what you can do to help others feel safe and welcome – how can we help one another to settle in for a new year?

Click on the different tabs below to explore this week’s prayer resources. We hope you have a great week!

Remember to comment in the comments box below and let us know how you get on in your form groups 🙂

Let us start our prayer by making the Sign of the Cross.

 

The God who Speaks green logo medium - MissioA reading from the letter of St Paul to the Philippians,

May you always be joyful in your union with the Lord. I say it again: rejoice!

Show a gentle attitude toward everyone. The Lord is coming soon. Don’t worry about anything, but in all your prayers ask God for what you need, always asking him with a thankful heart. And God’s peace, which is far beyond human understanding, will keep your hearts and minds safe in union with Christ Jesus.

The Word of the Lord

Response: Thanks be to God

 

St Paul wrote to the Philippians about joy and love whilst he was in prison. Paul shows us that no matter what happens or where we are, we can still have peace and a deep joy with Christ.

“Don’t worry about anything, but in all your prayers ask God for what you need”…Whatever emotions you may be feeling this week, remember that you always have a friend in God. A prayer is simply a chat with God and it can be done anywhere at anytime so don’t be afraid to tell Him what is on your mind.

 

Action: This form time we invite to get to know the people around you and help them feel welcome by completing the questions below:

What’s your favourite colour?

What’s your favourite food?

What is your best memory from over the Summer holiday?

What is something that you are grateful for?

What is the thing you are most looking forward to this year?

How can we act out our faith to welcome others?

Let us know in the comments box below some of your form’s answers!

 

Dear Lord,

We thank you for the gift of education and our school community.

We ask you to bless everyone who is returning to work and school at the moment, help us to be welcoming and considerate of others feelings.

May we be a light to others, show kindness and compassion, and show respect and gratitude to those who nurture us and keep us safe. 

Amen

 

We end our prayer by making the Sign of the Cross.

We hope you have a great day everyone! 🙂 

Remember to be kind, work hard and do the right thing.

Let us start our prayer by making the Sign of the Cross.

 

A reading from the book of Proverbs,

The Word of the Lord

Response: Thanks be to God

 

Think of a time when someone said kind words to you or showed you kindness. Think about how it made you feel…

If we want to help people feel welcome in our community we need to put the love of God into action. If we want to change the world for ourselves and others then it starts with one random act of kindness at a time.

 

The ‘Our Father’ is a welcoming prayer and is often referred to as a community prayer and it was taught to us by Jesus himself. It never uses the words ‘I’ or ‘Me’, instead it uses words like ‘Us’, ‘We’ and ‘Our’.

Let us join in saying our community prayer together, as we think about everyone in our school community, those who are sat in the same room as us, those around the school and those who return on next week.

Our Father, Who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy Will be done,
on earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

 

Your mission: Spend a moment looking around the room and choose someone at random to do a ‘random act of kindness’ (ARK) for. This may be as simple as giving them a smile or asking them questions to get to know that person a bit better.

We end our prayer by making the Sign of the Cross.

We hope you have a great Friday and weekend ahead 🙂
