Last Sunday was Christ the King Sunday, a day where we celebrate that Our Lord Jesus Christ is the King of the Universe. It is also called Youth Sunday, where we celebrate all that our young people do to put their faith into action in order to help others. We do incredible things as young people, it is important to recognise what we already do for others, and to build on this through Jesus’ message of prayer, love, forgiveness and care.

  • Well done to George (10 -MCY) and Henry Price (7-SGR) who have already brought in their completed shoe boxes!
  • The Chaplaincy team will be selling cakes outside the canteen this break time to raise money to sponsor a room at the Briars.

Well done to everyone at Christ the King for raising so much money! We have lots of campaigns that we are currently supporting here at All Saints’.  We’re sponsoring a room at the Briars, fundraising for the Lourdes pilgrimage, collecting food for our local foodbank and creating shoe boxes for the homeless. We’re all ears, what ideas have you got that support our current fundraising efforts? Comment below. 🙂

We end by making the Sign of the Cross.

When was the last time you did something for the elderly?

How often do you go out of your way for somebody less mobile?

Can YOU volunteer? Please say this prayer to the rest of your form group.

Loving Lord – we bring before You all the elderly and infirm… not only those that we know, but all who are facing this stage of their life.  Old age can often be lonely, help us to remember those who need our love, time and energy the most.

Lord hear us

Lord graciously hear us.

What can we do in our wider community to help the elderly?

This week, students have been taking part in prayer stations in the Chapel.  We have been ending each session with meditiation and reflecting on Luke’s Gospel.  Here is a small peek at what has been taking place.

As young people, we often find it hard to engage with the Bible, so we have been meditating and placing ourselves into the Gospel reading.  Students were asked to sit or lay down, close their eyes and completely emmerse themselves in the story.

What is your favourite Bible story?  Mine is the Good Samaritan.  I think it teaches us that you people can surprise you and that everyone can be good and help others.

Last year we created a video for one of themes of Advent – Joy.  We are going to make another video this year, take a look at last years one for inspiration.  We are going to go a little further this year, so in preperation, think not only about things that bring you joy, but also how you could bring joy to others.  Comment below 🙂
