To continue the leadership theme that Year 6 have started, on Friday, they celebrated mass with other Year 6 children from our deanery schools. This was a very special time when all the children were asked to consider the responsibility of being a disciple of Christ. Fr Peter reminded them that just as Christ is the light of the world, they too are called to be lights for others. The children truly did praise the Lord with their beautiful singing. During the mass, a child from each of the schools lit a candle to signify their mission in the world. This candle was then blown out at the end of the mass and taken back to their schools. Following mass, we walked to the Parish Centre where a team from Castlerigg, lead by Sister Rose explored this theme further asking the children to think about how they are using their gifts to bear witness to Christ.
It is now up to the children to bring this light alive in their schools using the analogy of a light house - how can they bring light to others? What a beautiful way to start the year of their mission. Please click on the image to reveal more from the day of mission.
