The word of the week is Worship!

When we come together to worship God we are celebrating all that is good in our lives and reminding ourselves where those blessings come from. Worship can be done anywhere and in so many different ways- this is something that we have definitely learnt whilst not being able to attend Mass in person at Church.

This week think about something you want to celebrate and find a way to give thanks for it.

Click on the different tabs below to explore this week’s prayer resources which have been created by our friends at Trinity. 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.

Everyone: In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

This week, across the country, it is Anti-Bullying Week. Bullying is never okay and our school has strict no bullying policy. As Christians we try to be more like Christ everyday by showing love and forgiveness to one another. It is everyone’s responsibility to put a stop to bullying.

This week we want to focus on how we can unite together to help reduce bullying in school and online. We all need to work together to do this.

We would like you to make a pledge outlining how you will be playing your part to unite against bullying. Our friends at Trinity school give everyone the mission to write their anti-bullying pledge in the comments box below!

Let us pray:

Dear Lord,

You keep us safe and provide us shelter in our times of need. Please forgive those who disobey your Word and hurt others. We ask that you help them to see your light and kindness and ask for forgiveness. Help us to live out Christ’s example everyday, and to be better people in our thoughts, words and deeds.

Amen

 

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

All: In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

This week’s Act of Worship has been planned and delivered by 7R!

Before you start the Act of Worship, spend a few moments gathering your thoughts and prayers together for the day.

We hope you enjoy the Act of Worship! Make sure that you join in with the scripture responses and group action led by 7R!

     

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

    Everyone: In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

     

    Worship can mean different things to different people. There is no right or wrong way to come closer to God, you can talk, sing, be silent, pray, whatever feels right and comfortable to you.

    Some people prefer to worship alone, whilst others prefer to be with others. Worship can be loud and joyful or quiet and reflective. Each way to worship is equally as reverent as the others and known by God.

    We invite you to watch some of the worship video below and see how this group of people are worshiping.

    Spend some time talking to the person next to you:

    How did the worship in the video make you feel?

    What is your favourite way to pray and worship?

    Is there a form of prayer and worship that you would like to try and experience?

    What do you want to see on the prayer resources?

    Let us know in the comments below!

      What is National Youth Funday?

      After a year when so many of us have been separated from loved ones, the theme “Together” has been chosen as schools are invited to the first-ever National Youth Funday on Friday 20th November.

      National Youth Funday is part of the build-up to National Youth Sunday, which this year is on Sunday 22nd November, the feast of Christ the King.

      National Youth Sunday is a unique opportunity to celebrate the role and significance of young people in the Catholic Church in England and Wales today.

      Celebrated on the Feast of Christ the King, National Youth Sunday is an opportunity to recognise young people as a gift in the Church, enable the youth ministry and parish community to celebrate young people and affirm the contribution of young people in the Church and those who work with them. NYS takes place on Sunday 22nd November 2020.

      CYMFed, the Catholic Youth Ministry Federation of England and Wales, is behind both celebrations and has produced resources for this NYS on behalf of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales.

      “The way we live, work, study, play and pray have all been changed by the pandemic,” says CYMFed project officer Dominque Finn

      “The most significant change has been not being able to do many of those things together. This year’s theme recognises what it means to be together, with ourselves, with others and with God.

      “Pope Francis expresses this beautifully. ‘To come out of this crisis better than before, we have to do so together; together, not alone. Together. Alone no, because it cannot be done. Either it is done together, or it is not done. We must do it together, all of us, in solidarity’.

      “One of the biggest changes we have all had to adapt to is social distancing. We know measures put in place are to keep us safe but have resulted in many young people feeling isolated and marginalised.

      “With this imposed distance from others, we may have felt an increasing distance between ourselves and God. However, amid all these trials and hardships, God calls us to new opportunities and a life of hope. We look forward to a time where we can freely get together with family and friends.”

      National Youth Funday starts at 9.45am and ends with a closing liturgy at 2.10pm. It will be live-streamed on CYMFed’s YouTube Channel, youtube.com/cymfed

      Join us for the first national schools event of it’s kind and come #together to reflect and prepare for this years National Youth Sunday.

      Form time reflections:

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

      All: In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
