On Wednesday the 29th of March, the chaplains Joe Halliday, Abigail and Joe Raw, performed a liturgy for 6 year 1 pupils. It was all about how when youstop following in Jesus’ footsteps. God will always love you an go to find you; he will also bring you closer to him.

Last week we told some children from Year 3 all about the Last Supper and the Passover. We asked the children if they knew what the Passover was and any of the consequences. We also asked the children to put down a pebble or a flower on the altar. They made little boxes with prayers and quotes on. The quote of the liturgy was,”Love the Lord as he has loved you.” .
We read several bible stories and gospels and even a psalm. The mission was , ” Go forth and act in the way of Jesus”. The children that participated were: Ben, Daniel, Emily, Masie, Louise and Dominique.
They really enjoyed the small reflection time together; they listened so well they even got a small chocolate as a treat for being such good ambassadors for our school.

On Wednesday 8th February, The Chaplaincy /Gift Team visited St. Anthony’s Chapel, Horwich. We shared some liturgies with other primary schools, (St. Peter and St. Paul, St. Ethelbert, St. Joseph’s, St. Osmund’s, St. William of York, St. Mary’s and of course, Holy Infant and St. Anthony’s) and sang some lovely hymns.
Our liturgy was about Rights and Responsibilities and everyone said it was very moving.
We took some amazing ideas from the other schools such as: a prayer bell, building an altar, a chain that we could write on saying what we could do to help others and a lovely slideshow with some music. We also shared a tasty snack!
It had been a really great afternoon and it was fun mixing with children from other schools.

The team has been very busy organising half-termly collective worship sessions for our Yr 1 and Yr2 pupils. These take place at lunchtime in the Prayer Room. The focus has been on The Rosary and Advent. They have also taken part in a full day retreat at Shoenstatt with the other members of the BOSCEP schools. As part of their work they have helped in organising a collection of food for the Bolton Community Kitchen during Harvest week and also a shoe box appeal for the homeless at Christmas. x
The Team will be adding their own Blogs to let you know about the different activities they undertake.
