On Monday October 29th the Year 6 class celebrated together to finalise their learning about Confirmation. THe children had a shared Mass, lunch at the Botanical Gardens and a range of rotational art activities. Throughout the day the children reflected on the message of the Holy Spirit and the power of the gifts that the Spirit brings at Confirmation.
A huge Thank you to the teachers and Father Joe who made the day such a special one for the children.
Spirit of God, grant me:
The gift of wisdom,
To see the world through your eyes.
The gift of counsel,
To make a difficult decision.
The gifts of knowledge and understanding,
To use my mind to know You and to love You.
The gift of fortitude,
To have the courage to live in the faith,
Despite the difficulties and disappointments.
The gift go piety,
To be able to express my special love and commitment to you.
And the right kind of awesome fear,
That makes me pause to wonder and revere God’s Love.
