CHAPLAINCY

Here at Blessed Robert, we know our faith is a DOING faith.  As young people, living and growing with our faith starts right here with us.  We not only believe, breathe and live out our faith, but we enjoy owning it and leading it, essentially DOING it…and of course inspiring others to lead and do it too!  You’re on the right page to find out more about the teams at Blessed Robert who do just this – lead and inspire others in faith!

KS2 Liturgy Team

KEY STAGE 2 LITURGY TEAM 2019-20

Hello, I’m Aiden and I’m part of the Year 6 Liturgy Team which is a privilege to be given the chance to lead others in the school community.

Just like the Year 2 Liturgy Team we have lots of important jobs and responsibilities to lead our school in our Catholic faith. Our important jobs include planning and leading Liturgies for Key Stage 2 which can be nerve-wracking at first, but it is fun because we help other children be closer to God through their faith.

Another of our highly important jobs is to plan fundraisers for our school charities which include: Building Hope in Bunkpurugu, CAFOD, Emmanuel House, the Clifton Food Bank and supporting our Parish Church, Corpus Christi.

Our school Masses add lots of responsibility to our Liturgy Team as we help to prepare the Mass parts and assist Miss Ferrara in setting up for our wonderful Masses which are led by our Parish priest, Fr Wilfred. Fr Wilfred is the best priest ever because he is always smiling and he always cares for us – he brought a smile to our face with his special appearance in our Christmas video this year!

It’s not just down to us to expand our knowledge of our faith further as the other children help us as well. We consider our role to be to inspire other children to carry on our legacy which reminds everyone in our community that God is always there for them and has unconditional love for them.

Keep calm and love your faith!

 

KS1 Liturgy Team


KEY STAGE 1 LITURGY TEAM 2019-20

Hi we’re Isabella and Francis and we’re part of the Year 2 Liturgy Team!

It’s really fun to be part of the Team! We get to do good jobs such as reading the Word of God from the Bible to tell people the Good News about Jesus.

One of our important roles is to plan and create fun Liturgies for all of the children in Key Stage 1. We work with our Chaplains, Joe and Marsha, and start by discussing the theme of our Liturgy and what scripture we would like to use. Next we decide what we are going to see, hear, think and do in our Liturgy to help the children to love one another and to have a good time praying.

As well as Liturgy planning we have other special jobs. When important visitors come to our school we welcome them as ambassadors, it is really lovely to meet new people and to tell them what we do. We also write wonderful prayers to God and sing hymns which we share with the other children.

In the future we are looking forward to visiting other Classes to read beautiful Bible stories to them so they can learn more about God too.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Chaplains

Hi, we’re Ruth and Joe and we are the Chaplains who are privileged enough to work at Blessed Robert Widmerpool School!

Our weekly visits to BRW always hold something new and exciting, whether it’s supporting students in planning and preparing Masses and Liturgies or visiting each classroom with the Prayer Monitors to evaluate the Prayer Focus displays, there is always something to keep us busy and active in our faith. The staff and students at BRW are so passionate about their faith that it truly is inspiring to work with them and to help bring their wonderful ideas to life.

Some of the important people that we work with are the Year 6 Chaplaincy Team and the Year 2 Chaplaincy Team. Their role is to lead, support and inspire other students in their faith and you can see the huge impact that they have on their school community through the hard work that they do. Every student shows respect and reverence for their faith which allows all students to experience times of encounter with Jesus and leaves us confident that there are many missionary disciples in the making here at BRW school!

The staff and students at Blessed Robert Widmerpool are always doing something new and different and luckily, they love to blog, so make sure you check out their web pages to find out about events and experiences that they, and the wider community, have shared and if you can make it, please come and join us!
