Vocations Talk - Ann-Christy John came from the Vocations Department at the Diocese to talk about vocations.  She discussed with the children what vocations means.  A Vocation is a 'calling', Ann-Christy highlighted different people from the Old Testament who had been called by God.  Noah, Samuel, Ester.  Then she identified people from the New Testament, such as Mary.  Mary agreed to be the Mother of Jesus, she decided to take that 'calling' on.  She explained about how God created a perfect plan for our lives.  However, she explained that God's perfect plan may not be followed by us, we may choose our own path.  God is a loving Father and he gives us free will to choose for ourselves.  God knows us better than we know ourselves.  What kind of a person do you want to be?  What qualities do you have?  Could you be a Saint?  Yes or No.

  

Alton Castle - On Wednesday 13th September until Friday 15th September 2017, Year 6 went to Alton Castle for their residential retreat.  They took part in lots of activities.  They sang, prayed and took part in Mass.  They thoroughly enjoyed their time there and were sad to leave on the Friday.  They all have wonderful memories of their time there.
