The people of St John Fisher Parish took part in a Rosary Rally to pray for peace in Syria. The children in school were led in decade of the Rosary to link with the parish through prayer.
Prayer for Peace in Syria
God of Compassion,
hear the cries of the people of Syria.
Comfort those who suffer violence.
Console those who mourn the dead.
Give strength to Syria’s neighbouring countries to welcome the refugees.
Convert the hearts of those who have taken up arms
and protect those who are committed to peace.
God of hope,
inspire leaders to choose peace over violence and to seek reconciliation with their enemies.
Inflame the Universal Church with compassion for the people of Syria and give us hope for a future built on justice for all.
We ask this through Jesus Christ,
the Prince of Peace and Light of the world.
Holy Month of May
Miss Musto led the children in praying the Holy Rosary during the Month of May. We also took part in the parish Crowning of our Lady after Sunday morning Mass. What a wonderful occasion – and we were so lucky with the weather too!
Jo Boyce and Friends Mass
Our choir were very lucky to be part of our 3 parish partnership event with Jo Boyce and Friends. The children sang beautifully and performed reverently and prayerfully. Many thanks to the children for their wonderful efforts!
During our multi-culture week in May, Year 6 visited a synagogue to find out all about the Jewish faith. They had a fantastic time and found it extremely informative and interesting.
Holy Week Assembly
Our Liturgy leaders led the children in a Holy Week assembly. They renacted the Last Supper Jesus shared with his disciples and shared some prayers they had written. Well done children for being so prayerful and reverent.
