A group of children worked hard to plan and lead a liturgy in class to help us to reflect and rejoice in our learning of ‘Vocation & Commitment.’ The group created a prayerful space and chose readings and prayers to fit with the theme. The story of Jesus’ Baptism was read and afterwards, the group used John Henry Newman’s reflection to help us to to recognise that we all have our own calling from God. As our mission, the group asked us all to make a vow that we could try hard to stick to for the following week.
You have the right to choose your own religion and beliefs. Your parents should help you decide what is right and wrong, and what is best for you.
You have the right to a good quality education. You should be encouraged to go to school to the highest level you can.
Your education should help you use and develop your talents and abilities. It should also help you learn to live peacefully, protect the environment and respect other people.
You have the right to practice your own culture, language and religion – or any you choose. Minority and indigenous groups need special protection of this right.
