The 22nd June is a very important day for everyone at St Thomas More Catholic Primary School. To celebrate this special day, each class spent the day learning about the life of our Patron Saint. We then gathered together outside to reflect on all that we had learnt. The Chaplaincy Team led us in a reflection and then each class displayed what they had created and learnt. We had a fantastic day!
Here are some of our reflective areas from around our school.
Each pupil has joined in the CAFOD campaign to help fight the climate crisis. Every class watched the CAFOD Eyes of the World animation and responded to it by drawing eyes. We joined the campaign to call on the Prime Minister to support the world's poorest communities affected by the climate crisis. 171 of our pupils took part and we sent this information to CAFOD.
Keep a look out for our Eyes of the World display ...
"We come together as part of God's family"
In school, each class reflected on the key messages from the letter outlined by Pope Francis - Laudato Si'. We then created our own pledge. Here are some of our examples.
Pope Francis has proclaimed this year ‘The Year of Joseph’ (8 December 2020 to 8 December 2021). During this time, Ten Ten will be providing resources to help us think about St Joseph and pray to Him.
‘Saint Joseph reminds us that those who appear hidden or in the shadows can play an incomparable role in the history of salvation.’ Pope Francis (8th December 2020)
Celebrating the life of St Joseph, and calling on him for help, is particularly relevant in this time of universal turmoil when so many are having difficulty finding employment, when we are becoming more aware of how much we owe to so many ordinary, hardworking people, and when our human frailty and mortality are so much in our minds and in the news.
Through the Year of St Joseph, the Church is reminding us that we have a powerful ally in Heaven who, having lived and worked so long in the shadows like so many unsung heroes, is working tirelessly for us and with us in the here and now.
