Year 6 Pray the Lectio Divina in the Prayer Garden

November 2017

The Year 6 pupils used the prayer garden to pray the Lectio Divina. They used scripture to contemplate on how that scripture impacts on their lives and how it will impact on their actions.

 

Watch this space as after contemplating, the Year 6s came up with suggestions on actions to carry out to 'give back' during the season of Advent...

Parish Christmas Bazaar Competition

November 2017

In today's assembly, we awarded all pupils who entered the Parish Bazaar competition with a prize for their efforts. The Parish Council at Our Lady of The Annunciation Church set our children the task of designing a poster promoting the Parish Bazaar which takes place on Saturday 18th November from 12pm-3pm at the parish.  The Council were very impressed with the children's efforts and awarded each child who entered with a prize.

All Saints' Day Mass

November 2017

Today Father Colin delivered a mass where we remembered all of the women, men and children who have died and are now in heaven. We thanked God for the lives of those people who have left this world. Some saints have been singled out for their own feast day but there aren’t enough days of the year to fit all the countless saints who walked through this life witnessing to Jesus. We used today as a time for us to think about all the unknown saints – all those people whose courage and love is untold.

 

During the mass, we also celebrated our own family members, relatives, neighbours and friends who we know are in heaven with Our Father. We offered their names during the offertory and will continue to pray for them during this month of the Holy Souls.

100th Anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima

Friday 13th October 2017

 

As a school, we marked the 100th Anniversary since Our Lady appeared at Fatima, Portugal, with a special prayer service in school. The children all took time to visit our shrine dedicated to our Lady's apparition which has been decorated with statues that Mrs. Sherlock and Miss Kelly, our Vice Chair of Governors, brought back to the school upon returning from a recent pilgrimage to Fatima where they paid homage to Our Lady and commemorated her 100th anniversary.

Harvest Collection 2017

Barnet Homeless

At harvest-time, the sharing of food helps us to remember that all good gifts come from God. Giving is our way of saying thank you to God in a practical way whilst remembering that He commanded all people to love and care for others. The school community at the Annunciation Juniors find greater happiness in giving than receiving. This year we are donating food for the charity, Barnet Homeless.
