It's great to see that the children of our parish are keeping their faith strong during the lockdown!
Families have been sharing pictures with us at church and at school, showing how children have been marking Easter at home, praying and learning more about our faith. Some, like Charlie, have shared pictures of their brilliant RE home learning:
...whilst others, like Ava, have shown us their colourful Easter cards...
... and there have been some stunning Easter gardens:
Matthew has been helping to lead his family in prayer:
Some have obviously been inspired by Father Leopold - look at this great drawing by Ashish!
It looks like our Lego priest inspired Alessio to make this fabulous shrine to Our Lady:
Some of the children, like Jacson and Daniel, have been visiting the outdoor shrine at Ladyewell with their families as part of their daily exercise:
And some, like Evie, have been practising their faith by raising money for charity, showing love for others. Look at those delicious cakes and biscuits!
Giulietta and Alessio combined their fundraising for the NHS with the V.E. Day celebrations - great idea!
We are so blessed to have so many faithful children and families as part of our parish community, and it's wonderful that our school does so much to support them in their faith, even when the children can't be in class. You can see more examples and pictures of the children's faith on the regularly updated school blog: https://www.st-clares.lancs.sch.uk/blog/archive.php?cat=religious-education
