Battersea6th Form Advent Photo

 

The 6th Form Advent Service this year was based on the theme of how can Advent be a time of joyful waiting or hope when there is so much pain and suffering in our world. Students heard accounts from victims of IS, acid attacks and human trafficking. The 6th formers focused on pictures of suffering but were then asked to place candles on each picture of sorrow.

Through this exercise, we were able to illustrate to them that God comes to us amidst our sufferings and that we need to act as His light of joy and hope in our school, our families and in our communities.

The school chapel was beautifully prepared by Fr Saju John whilst students were prepared for the service by the Head of Sixth Form, Mr Polyviou, and the Assistant Head of Sixth Form, Ms Tezare.

This week, we experience the joy of Advent with the team at Savio House Youth Retreat Centre. We invite you to use some of the activities in your own reflections this week.

 

This year the Savio House community has been privileged to welcome young people from St James’ Catholic High School Cheadle Hulme and St Philip Howard Catholic Voluntary Academy Glossop for six Advent-themed retreat days. As Salesian Youth ministers there is no better way for us to enter more deeply into the season of Advent than by praying, playing and sharing with young people. So as a reflection we would like to share with you some of the programme we prepared and delivered.

This year, we will be looking at Advent from four different Salesian perspectives: a school; a youth ministry project; a religious community; and a parish.

 

As we share in their preparations for the Nativity of the Lord, we can connect as one Salesian Family across our Province, and reflect together on hope, peace, joy and love.

 

The first stop on our Salesian Advent journey is at St John Bosco College, Battersea. Take a look.
