Over the course of the year, every child in Year 3 and Year 6 will have the chance to take the Prayer Bag home to share with their family. Inside, the children will find items to allow them to set up their own focal point in an area of their home that will allow a special prayer time, on their own or with their family.
Children are encouraged to light a candle as a sign of Jesus' presence and to bless themselves with the Holy Water. As part of their experience, we encourage children (with the support of an adult) to complete the Prayer book. Children could either write a recount of how they set up the focal point or they may wish to write a special prayer intention. We would also really love to see as many photographs or drawings included in the book as possible so children can share their experiences with their classmates when they return the Prayer bag to school.
