Harvest Liturgy 6th October 2017
While the earth remains,seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night, shall not cease (Genesis 8.22)
During our Harvest Liturgy the children in KS2 reminded us all about how fortunate we are. We celebrated Harvest Fast Day by coming together to pray for our global family and those who are without food. We would like to thank our parents/carers for the donations. These will be going to two local charities that support the homeless; the South Tyneside Key Project and Hospitality and Hope.
All Saints Day
In the Key Stage 2 Liturgy we celebrated All Saints Day in which we remembered all those who have died, particularly those who have sacrificed their lives for others in war.
November- The Month of Remembrance
In November we remember all those who have died especially those who have died during wars. As you can see, our focal points reflect this in St. Oswald's.
Year 6 Class Liturgy in the Prayer Garden
Our class liturgy this week took place in St Oswald's Prayer Garden. It is a peaceful place where we feel we can reflect and pray together. In our liturgy we thought about preparation whilst listening to Matthew's gospel. At the end of the liturgy we placed a poppy on the cross as it is the Month of Remembrance.
Decorating the Tree
On Friday we decorated the our Christmas tree. The members of the School Council were given the task of making it look beautiful. Well done boys and girls, as you will agree it looks splendid!
Advent in our school
During Advent we prepare for Christmas, when Christ's first coming is remembered, and it is the season when that remembrance directs the mind and heart to await Christ's second coming at the end of time. The season of Advent is a period of joyful expectation.
