As we move into February, Spring is in the air and there are just a couple of weeks to catch our breath before Lent begins. We’re well and truly into the new year!
If you have the feeling that you’re constantly trying to juggle the needs of your family and having to prioritise an ever-increasing list of must-dos, take comfort in the Gospel for the week commencing 4th February – Jesus knew what it was like to be busy and He took time away to reset.
But despite His busyness, Jesus prioritised prayer – it’s always possible to find time for the things we value. As this is a special Year of Prayer (a time of preparation for the Jubilee Year in 2025 - more on that later in the year!), perhaps this is an opportunity to try to prioritise prayer time in your family life.
This newsletter shares some of the content children will experience in school throughout February and suggests ways for you to engage with them about it. We hope it is a useful resource for your family prayer time.
Introducing our Lenten series: Perfect Promises
This Lent, our assemblies follow the theme of God’s Perfect Promises. Children will listen to some familiar and not-so-familiar stories from the Old Testament, taken from the First Readings of the Sunday Masses in Lent.
Starting with Noah and the theme of ‘Hope’, children will learn about God’s promises to us and His unchanging love and commitment. We’ll explore further themes of blessing, guidance, presence and belonging, leading to the revelation of Jesus, as the fulfilment of God’s Perfect Promises.
With your child, why not…
