Monday 4th May

Happy Monday Year 1!

Welcome to a new week and a new month. 

Morning message - 04.05.20


04.05.20 Do you know why the second number has changed to 5?




Did you know that May is the month of Mary? During this time we celebrate Mary, the mother of our Lord. Try your best to say the Hail Mary each day and include the NHS staff and all Key Workers in your prayers. Let's start our day with a prayer.

Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.  



See the link below to join in for our Monday liturgy with your families. There is also a special PowerPoint for the month of Mary. Can you learn the Rosary?
