Living Out Love- Our Parent Liturgy

On Tuesday 4th December, Year 5 held a lovely class liturgy for their parents. They planned the whole session, thinking about where and how we would gather, which scriptures we would read, how we would respond to the reading and how we would go forth from the liturgy. During our planning we kept in mind how Jesus said the greatest commandment of all is to love one another and how we show love through our words and our actions.

We turned to scripture to hear a popular reading about love: Corinthians 13: 4 – 8.

We passed a candle around the circle and shared who we are thankful for and how we love them.

We made thank you cards to give to the people who we love. We want them to know how grateful we are for them and how much they are loved.
