Learning Intention for Wednesday 24th February 2021
We are continuing with our topic ‘unity‘
To be able to show an understanding of how belief in Jesus, the uniting presence in Holy Communion, shapes the lives of Christians
Read the Eucharistic Prayer for children:
Learning Focus 3 – Eucharistic Prayer for Children III
Our Father presentation 97-2003 format
Reflect on these questions:
- Which are your favourite words or phrases and why?
- Which one surprised you and why?
- How do you think being in communion with Jesus Christ and his Church might make a difference to your life?
I would like you to think of all the ways in which you can work for the peace and unity of your family, class and/or school today. Create a PowerPoint presentation or a poster to illustrate this. Make links to some scripture already studied in this topic, some of the phrases from the Eucharistic Prayer III and your own experience and feelings.
