On 1st November, we celebrated All Saint’s Day. It is a time when we remember all of the saints who have died and the wonderful things they have done.
KS2 attended mass, but KS1 had a special assembly. In the assembly the children prayed and gave thanks to the saints. They learnt that the saints in heaven can strengthen and help us to follow the path that leads us to God’s love and the lasting happiness he offers to all.
We are all called by God to be saints and to let his love shine out through our lives to fill the world with the light of his love! The Gospel, we heard today, helps to shape our lives and make them pleasing to God. If we can grow closer to God we will find the true and lasting happiness that the saints already enjoy.
