This week the Primary 5 pupils went to a lovely, fun and very peaceful retreat in St.Kevin’s Church Hall. They learned about the 7 Sacraments and their significance.
During this time, they went into groups and had a chosen Sacrament. They had great fun and worked very well as part of a team.
One group was learning about the Sacrament of marriage and dressed a pupil as a groom out of toilet paper. The other group were concentrating on the Sacrament of Holy Orders and covered a pupil in toilet paper to dress as a Priest and the last group had the Sacrament of Baptism.
The children also went into the Church for story time and a meditation and reflection lesson. They thought about their conscience at this time.
