People Liturgy

During our RE topic this half term, we have explored what the word family means to us.

In our class liturgy, we reflected on the joys and sorrows of family life and thanked God for blessing us with our families. We celebrated being part of the Corpus Christi school family as well as being united in the Universal Family of God.

We shared messages from scripture, about Jesus’ own   human family and how we can apply this ideal in our own family. We each places a fingerprint on St. Cuthbert’s cross to create artwork that symbolises belonging to a family, and made a promise to go forth and try hard to be  trusting, loyal, loving and forgiving in our family life.
