We celebrated the arrival of the Lampedusa cross.
When hundreds of refugees drowned off the coast of the Italian island of Lampedusa, a carpenter in sorrow and sadness, gathered driftwood from the beaches much of which was from the wrecked boats. He turned the wood into crosses and offered them to the survivors as a symbol of hope.
The cross we received at Corpus Christi has been made by St Edward’s Catholic School near Salisbury and is travelling to every Catholic school in our diocese.
We had a special day with a prayer activity and a 2km walk around the playground.
We had a wonderful day at Bristol Museum last Friday. We learnt about the Ancient Greeks in a special Greek workshop looking at real Greek artefacts. We also had a lot of fun looking at the natural history exhibits and rocks and minerals.
