Learning from Father John and Coping with Sadness

Our R.E. topic this term is Coping with Sadness and our Life Journey. I asked Father John if he would like to come in and chat to the children about the Catholic Life Journey and Coping with Sadness. In response, he invited us to the most beautiful, heartwarming and appropriate children's mass on the subject, using metaphors of trees and water to symbolise someone who has passed and someone who is still living. The students were all invited to the church foyer for a visual demonstration of this metaphor, before being allowed to join Father John around the table as he prepared for communion.
