In school our Faith Leaders have a busy and important role!
This year all of our Faith Leaders are from Year 6.
Meet the team...
One of our favourite jobs is leading the end of the day Star Assembly but we have also led Worship on Mother Teresa and Remembrance for the Whole School on Friday Mornings. We are currently undergoing training on good ways of using our new prayer space here in school. We are looking forward to working with Miss Jones and Mrs Wilson to provide opportunities for all children during lunch times.
Laudato Si' - One God, One World
The Pope has written a letter about the need for us to look after the world that we live in so that future generations can enjoy it too. As a Partnership of Catholic Schools in Bradford, we have put together an art exhibition called 'One God, One World' that will be travelling around our parishes starting in Lent 2016. We are all very proud to be part of this project because we are promoting the Pope's message. We had lots of fun in school coming up with different art ideas and we enjoyed leading an assembly to launch the day in St Joseph's.
Mini Vinnies are part or the much larger organisation of the SVP. The motto of the Mini Vinnies is 'Turning Concern into Action' and we are really excited about leading this new group at St Joseph's. If you would like to find out more about the Mini Vinnies then why not have a look at their website http://www.minivinnies.org.uk/
If anyone has any ideas or activities that they would like the Mini Vinnies to be involved with then please speak to one of the Mini Vinnies (they'll be wearing their badges) or leave them a message on the notice board.
Meeting Other Mini Vinnies
On Wednesday the Mini Vinnies gathered together at St Mary and St Monica’s to meet with Mini Vinnies from St Winefride’s and St Walburga's. We all had a brilliant time sharing ideas and getting to know each other. We started the day with some team bonding activities then we reflected on the Year of Mercy and how we are called to help one another. As the weather was so nice we had a picnic outside before playing lots of fun games. In the afternoon we discussed how we could we help the elderly in our parishes and the ended with a peaceful liturgy. We are looking forward to developing our links with Mini Vinnies from other schools as well as continuing to put our concern into action.
