October is the month of the rosary. Mary the mother of Jesus has a special place in the life of our school. During this month the children come together to pray the rosary, led by our prayer leaders.
'The mighty one has done great things for me-Luke 1:4-9
The school celebrated Youth Friday today as part of our 'House Group Worship.' The children watched Bishop Seamus' message based on the theme of saying 'Yes.' Mary said 'Yes' to God and was prepared to be the mother of Jesus. Today, we celebrated the trust and faith that Mary had in God which helped us to think about how we can follow Mary's example. The children wrote their own special statements about how they will say 'Yes' to God and serve others.
After our Youth Friday House Group Worship we were inspired to create a sign for our hall windows. The sign tells us all that, here at St. Oswald's, we all say 'Yes to God!'
Year 3 Advent Wreath Service
The first week of Advent was led by Year 3. We brought our Advent Wreath into the hall and it will stay there until Christmas. We explained what it all means and talked about how the circle of the wreath goes on and on just as the Love of God goes on and on forever. How will you live out your Advent promises.
“We walk in the footsteps of Jesus so that we may have life in all its fullness”
