On Thursday 8 February 2018, our children began their sacramental journey. The children celebrated their First Confession at Holy Rood Church along with other children from the parish.
Come and See in Nursery - Family Liturgy – February 2018
We are encouraging the children to ‘Talk to God’. We shared a simple family liturgy with our parents and grandparents. We used a cross, the bible and a candle and we made the sign of the cross. The children are now familiar with these signs and symbols and now associate them with talking to God. We sang familiar songs from our liturgies, ‘We can celebrate’ and ‘There is someone who knows me’. We then told the story of the presentation at the temple. We concluded the liturgy by sharing bread. Each family was given information and advice for supporting their child to talk to God at home. Thank you to everyone who joined us.
Come and See in Nursery – Celebrate – January 2018
The children are now beginning to take part in simple group liturgies. We thought about what a celebrate is and also what and how we celebrate. We have welcomed new children into our nursery and we took the opportunity to celebrate them joining our group.

Come and See in Nursery – Advent – November 2017
In Nursery we are getting ready to welcome a new baby. We gave the children an advent duster each with the challenge to get their hearts ready. The children worked hard to collect four purple stars on their dusters by being gentle, helpful, kind and doing their best.
Come and See in Nursery – Welcome – September 2017
Our youngest children are exploring their faith in a playful context. We explored what it is to welcome each other. We surprised the group by introducing children through the door and saying “welcome”. We welcomed a baby through a roleplay baptism and learnt the prayer:
“God cares for me. I know his love. Like a baby. Safe and snug”.
