Lenten Retreat Day

22 March 2018

"The Lord, your God, is in your midst, a mighty Saviour, who will rejoice over you with gladness, and renew you in his love." Zephaniah 3:17

We were delighted to welcome our friends Dan Callow and Emily back into our school for our Lenten Retreat Day. ‘A Heart That Sees’ calls for us in this Lenten season to point our hearts to God and towards hope for the resurrection. This day was used as an opportunity for prayer, acting and singing.

I was moved by the singing and hugely impressed by the responses given by pupils in the discussion parts of the day. Some of the answers showed some deep reflection and a great understanding of our faith. There was a huge sense of belonging and community. The Catholic Life Group helped Dan and Emily to prepare and lead the Liturgy at the end of our special day, which brought together all our work.

Thank you to Dan and Emily for sharing the joy of their faith with us and helped us to come closer to the Risen Jesus.
