First Holy Communion
Over the past months, many of our Y3 and Y4 pupils recently made their First Holy Communion in their parish. We celebrated this special Sacrament with a special Corpus Christi mass to commemorate the Body and Blood of Jesus. We congratulate our pupils on making this special step in their faith journey. Our Y2 pupils joined us for the mass in preparation for their own journey ahead. Y3 pupils handed over a single flower to our Y2 pupils to mark the passing on of the faith.
14 pupils from years 3 - 6 participated in the altar server training with Deacon Alex, to prepare them for the liturgical ministry of altar service. We look forward to expanding the team of altar servers at Friday mass.
The Three Kings procession
On Sunday we joined 9 of the Catholic Primary schools in Ealing Deanery together with the Polish Catholic community to celebrate and retell the story of the Epiphany. Children from each school came together dressed as kings in blue, red and green to attend to the three Magi - Casper, Melchior and Balthasar.
We gathered at Christ the Saviour Parish Church in Ealing Broadway and then walked in procession, following the star and the Magi all the way to Ealing Abbey singing Christmas carols in English and Polish as we walked. When we reached the Abbey we gathered around the Magi for some prayers and they then laid their gifts in front of the manger. Imagine our surprise when we found a real baby in the manger!
Stations of the Nativity
Our RE Ambassadors recorded the Stations of Advent for the Ealing Abbey Stations of the Nativity project. The stations provide a way to journey towards the birth of Jesus with some special reflections. We stop to think at each station and pray about an event leading up to the birth of Jesus. Each station begins with a prayer and a scripture reading, followed by a reflection and a message to take away, as a help to prepare during Advent for the coming of Christ at Christmas. You can also visit the Ealing Abbey website to listen to the family podcast, which explores readings from mass each week.
Local iconographer and parent, Mrs Studnik visited the school to give a workshop on Iconography. Pupils learnt about the process of 'writing an icon' and created some of their own masterpieces. In the Orthodox Christian tradition, icons are said to be written, not painted. The Orthodox consider making icons more a form of prayer than art; the iconographer's hand is guided by God.
