From the 9th-11th September Saint Philip Neri with Saint Bede CVA focused on rules for Christian living during their Year Six retreat to the Briars.
During a fun packed three days we built our home using materials collected during our games and activities. On Monday night we won our bricks by completing challenges in small groups. On Tuesday we made disciples and thought about how we should act to be good disciples; they became the people who lived in our home. On Wednesday morning our house was completed as we added a roof and our love for one another lit up the rooms inside through our affirmations.
We also enjoyed beautiful collective worship this week with two small groups presenting lovely morning prayer on the themes of being yourself and finishing our home. We also shared a brilliant mass on Tuesday afternoon.
