Prayer Leaders

Prayer leaders 2023-2024

Friday 29th September 2023
The children went in groups around the school. They looked at the prayer tables around the school. They felt that they were all in a good location and were the correct liturgical year.  All classes had a crucifix that they could see. They also looked for the class prayers to be on display. 
The children also discussed October, the month of the Rosary. They planned to lead the Rosary twice a week on a Monday and Friday with children who would like to join. 

15th September 
During the Gifts from God assembly, the prayer leaders in each year group were introduced to the rest of the school.

Prayer leaders 2023-2024

12th July 2023 
The prayer leaders are looking forward to next academic year. They started to consider the season of creation for September and are designing their own prayer area. 

26th June 2023 
The prayer leaders spoke to Mrs Pugh about prayer in our school. 

When asked how has prayer helped them they answered:
"Its helped me to get closer to God."
"It helps me know more about Jesus."
"Its helps me to appreciate God."

"Guiding me when I am stuck on something. "
"t inspires me to read the Bible more."
"Its helped me to grow more as a person, kindly and mentally."

19th June 2023
The Prayer leaders changed the two prayer areas. One of them is to say a prayer for someone that you love and the other one you pick a lolly pop stick and pray for who is on it. 

9th May 2023
The Liturgy leaders updated the prayer tree. They decided that because it was the month of May, they would like to pray for women. When a child says a prayer they put a blue piece of paper on the tree to represent their prayer.

Prayer leader meeting 
We discussed the idea of having a day in the library for the children to come and quiet prayer time, throughout the year and not just during Lent. 

We also went out to the prayer garden to decided our next steps. We would like to get it cleaned up, painted and have some activities for the children to complete during playtimes. 

Mrs Pugh then met with Mrs Rooney to discuss plants. She is going to spend some gardening money to buy some plants for the garden. 
Mrs Pugh also met with Mr Cordiner who is going to mow the grass and jet wash the pavement of the area. 

The prayer leaders in particular Rebecca, Mary, Zachary and Ruth have worked incredibly hard during Lent and supporting children in the whole school to be able to pray in the library during Lent. I am very grateful to them. 
Mrs Pugh.
