29 June 2017
On Thursday 29th June 2017, the children in Year 3 prepared a very special prayer service, dedicated to the children in Year 6 as they were making their Sacrament of Confirmation on the 1st July 2017.
In preparation for the Prayer Service the Year 3 children meet together to discuss how we should design the Prayer Cards. They then discussed the meaning of Confirmation and how the Holy Spirit will help and guide them in their lives by sealing them with the gifts. Before the service a group of children prepared the hall and prayer focus with signs and symbols for Confirmation.
At the start of the Prayer Service we sang ‘The Joy of the Holy Spirit’ and listened to the Introduction. The Gospel Reading was read by Joshua which was about the Ascension and how Jesus told his disciples he was sending a special helper. After this Reeni-Mae read the Pentecost Story from the Acts of the Apostles while it was been acted out.
We then listened to some of the prayers that the Year 3 children and written for their Prayer Partners and finished with the hymn ‘We Walk the Land.’
