Mission Week 2020
The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales have designated 2020 as 'The God Who Speaks': A Year of the Word to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Verbum Domini - Pope Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Exhortation on ‘The Word of the Lord’, and the 1600th anniversary of death of St Jerome, who translated the Bible into Latin.
As part of our mission week and to help mark this event a number of pupils spent time studying images of paintings created by the artist Peter Clare which reflect the Gospel of Matthew.
The pupils used the reflections of Father Dries van den Akker SJ to help them understand the stories behind the paintings. This enabled them write their thoughts or questions they had on paper which could then be shared with the other pupils.
