Meet our Gift Team
Our Gift Team explain why they wanted to join the Gift Team Quotes from our Gift Team
Throughout Advent in 2017 the GIFT Team held a weekly prayer group in the Prayer Room. The Jesse Tree is used during Advent to tell the story of the Bible up until the birth of Christ. The GIFT Team shared short stories related to the Jesse Tree and explained the meaning of the various symbols. Each day a symbolic decoration was added to the tree. Children from all year groups attended the prayer group each lunchtime and some classes used the Jesse Tree in their own class collective worships.
The GIFT Team visited St. Peter’s High School for a sharing of Advent ideas in December 2017. The morning was filled with activities relating to Advent and how we prepare for the coming of Jesus Christ. We got the opportunity to meet with other GIFT Chaplaincy Teams and share ideas. We then took part in a special Advent mass.
Throughout October, the GIFT Team have been leading a daily prayer group for children across the whole school to celebrate the Month of the Holy Rosary. Each day, we discussed the Mysteries of the Rosary and their significance. Each member of the GIFT Team took it in turns to lead a decade of the Rosary each lunchtime. Lots of children gave up time in their lunch to attend the group, with many children attending the session everyday – thank you!
