The Religious Education Department Update

The beginning of Term 4 saw our Ash Wednesday whole school Mass and the receiving of the Ashes as we journeyed through the season of Lent.   Many staff have led spiritual hot spots to deepen our faith and cause us to raise our consciences on how to prepare ourselves to be closer to God.  Lauren Bassett our school Chaplin has been busy inspiring reflections on CAFOD and Bible study that have motivated students to being keen fund raiser, whilst also getting them to reflect on how Lent give us the opportunity to do some spiritual house cleaning.  She has also organised Year Reflections to think about the significance of Lent with a reflection service and the opportunity for students to use the sacrament of reconciliation.

General RE for Year 12 and 13 enjoyed guest speakers who delivered a powerful and thought provoking workshop on domestic violence over two lessons.   After watching the drama, students had the opportunity to raise questions on the topic in groups and discuss the problems of domestic violence and how to seek help from organisations.

 

This term also saw the memorial service for James Griffin. Students had the opportunity along with staff to attend the Mass and write a comment in a memory book which was passed on to his family.  Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with his family and friends in this season of Lent

 

Notice: It is the Lasallian 300th Celebration (this Saturday)!
