Year 7 take part in their first Eucharist at Bishop Luffa School

On Monday 21st September Year 7 gathered on the school field to come together as a community and share in their first Eucharistic service at Bishop Luffa.

We were very excited about the service, which we see an a central part of school life and being part of the Bishop Luffa Community. It is consciously planned so that students and staff of all backgrounds, whether that be Christian, or for example, Islamic or non- religious, can feel comfortable and included.

Our service was lead by Reverend Paul Collins and students reflected on the difference between intelligence and wisdom. Paul encouraged all of us to seek wisdom in our studies, in our relationships and to come together as a community with the common goal of increasing our insight into all areas of life to enable us to live life in all it’s fullness. Students are free to decide whether to take the sacrament when it is offered and approximately 200 pupils decided to take the sacrament in the service.

Ella Hatch (7Sherborne) and Riley Terry-Eid (7Sherborne) read the bible readings during the service. These prayers were written by our students:

Maria Hawkes (7Sherborne)

Dear Lord,
Bless our school - Bishop Luffa.
May education in all its fullness be showered upon us.
May many lasting friendships be formed by us, and may opportunities and successes come our way during our time here together.
And particularly at this unusual time keep us safe, and help us to be thoughtful, tolerant and understanding of others.
Amen

Chloe Northey (7Sherborne)

Dear God we pray today, for our local community in these times, as it has been hard to see each other so we pray that we can come together as a community.
We pray that local businesses will be able to recover from this pandemic.
We pray for those who are ill at the moment and for those who have difficult or insecure jobs.
We now more than ever need to go to you God our Father and ask you to help our community, Amen.

Abi Hughes (7Sherborne)

Dear Holy Father,
Please let there be peace in wars that are happening in other countries and others in countries in civil unrest.
Please help those who are suffering from illnesses such as Covid 19 and please be beside those who are concerned about their loved ones.
Please help everyone to care more for the environment as you gave us this planet, may we not tear it apart and be more careful with it.
Please also help the hungry, poor, and homeless stand back on their feet where you would want them to be.
Please help everyone with their issues in life and help guide everyone on the right path in life.
Thank you for all the things you do for us. Amen

Mrs Bradberry - Worship Co Ordinator
