As we celebrate our first Sunday of advent we light the first purple candle (Prophecy Candle) which represents hope.

The children gathered for a whole school collective worship to light the candle and share the message from this week's Gospel. 
 

"So stay awake, because you do not know the day when your master is coming." (Matthew 24:42) 
 

The children sang a hymn called Hope and shared a prayer together from the CAFOD advent reflection.

For the second Sunday of advent we light the next purple candle (Bethlehem Candle) which represents Faith.

"A voice calls in the wilderness: Prepare a way for the Lord, make his paths straight.” (Matthew 3:3)

 

The children took time to quietly reflect on the hymn 'Little Donkey' which sings of Mary's journey to Bethlehem for the coming of Jesus Christ.
