This afternoon the whole school met together in the round for a very special assembly.
We began with three candles lit on our Advent wreath. We then listened to this weekend’s Gospel before lighting the fourth candle.
We sang Silent Night together and then listened about the Birth of Jesus in Luke’s Gospel.
As we sang Away in a Manger a little friend from our reception class with a special birthday on 25th December placed Jesus in the manger!
We then lit the final candle on our advent wreath, the white one, as we will not be in school on Christmas day!
We thought about Mary’s important ‘Yes’ and her part in God’s wonderful plan for the world. We joined together with a Hail Mary thinking of those who will be less fortunate than us at Christmas.
The children have been asked to help out at home in the lead up to Christmas day! Thank you to everyone for your support with concerts and plays and charity efforts over the past few weeks. Thank you also from all of the adults for lovely gifts ad kind words – you are very generous. We will keep you in our prayers at this time!
Merry Christmas and a Happy new |Year from everyone at St Margaret Clitherow School. Have a wonderful celebration with your family!
God bless you and yours!
See you on 6tth January 2015!
