The Year of Oscar Romero
The Year of Oscar Romero was launched by the Diocese in January to celebrate his centenary. There will be a monthly focus taken from quotations, values or virtues relevant to Oscar Romero and will be linked to the liturgical season or a charity, or an event on the global calendar. An Oscar Romero Prayer Bag will be taken home by a child from each class on Fridays to share with their families. This is an opportunity for children and their families to learn more about Oscar Romero and to pray together.
Each month there will be a prayer focus for the children to think and reflect on.
These will include:
January – Introduction to the life of Oscar Romero
February – Light
March – Poverty
April – Romero Cross
May – The Church
June – Pray and Share
July – Aspire not to have more
September – Peace
October – It is not God’s will for some to have everything.
November – Remembrance
December – Joy
