Project Compassion story of the week

As we continue our efforts for Project Compassion I would like to share with you our focus for week 5.

Palm Sunday

This Sunday is Palm Sunday. Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week. It celebrates Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem on the back of a donkey. Great crowds of people filled the streets waving palm branches to welcome Him. The people shouted 'Hosanna' and laid their cloaks and palm branches from nearby trees in His path.

Palm Sunday occurs one week before Jesus' resurrection. This week, Holy Week, commemorates the final days of Jesus' life and culminates with the greatest festival in the Christian calendar, Easter.

Mathew 21: 7-11
They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on. A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted,

"Hosanna to the Son of David!"

"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!"

"Hosanna in the highest heaven!"

When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, "Who is this?"

The crowds answered, "This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee."

Year 3 Reconciliation

Congratulations to all our Year 3s who this week celebrated their First Reconciliation. We hope that the feeling of forgiveness brings you peace.
