Dear St Philip’s Families,
We have arrived at half term and the sun has started to come out! It has been a wonderful achievement to have completed a whole half term with all our children in school. It definitely feels as if we are edging back to normality.
Year 5 led our Liturgy in honor of Our Lady in the beautiful setting of our Mary garden this week. They reminded us of the many flowers associated with Mary, some of which are planted in our garden.
Mr Marsh has placed some benches in the Mary Garden, so when we are allowed to let people into school again, do take the opportunity of maybe sitting for a moment in the beautiful garden.
Yesterday was the Feast of St Philip. St Philip was a jolly man. One of my favourite quotes of his is, "A joyful heart is more easily made perfect than a downcast one." A good sentiment for us to hold dear during this time.
Sunday was the Feast of Pentecost, 'When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting.' Acts 2: 2.
The colour most often associated with Pentecost is red, representing the tongues of fire which the Acts of the Apostles describes appearing above the heads of the disciples, as a sign that they had received the Holy Spirit.
