Event - Stations of the Cross

10 to 12 April 2017

This week Years 3 and 4 led the school in prayer and meditation on the scenes of The Stations of the Cross, through songs, readings, freeze frames and reflections.

When we pray, we join Jesus in the final hours of His life on earth, as He carried the cross to the place where He is put to death. Of course there is sadness in our hearts as we think about all that Jesus suffered, but we know that our Lord accepted that suffering willingly for us, so every station and every prayer is really a reminder of His love for each one of us.

Thank you to all the parents who joined us in prayer this week.
