Weekly Assembly

Term 2 Week 2

11 - 15 January 2021

Welcome

The SLT or any educator who is conducting the assembly will address the students positively saying good morning to all. One can start this assembly with the sign of the cross: "In the name of the Father, and of the son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen"


Introduction

On January 16th we will be celebrating the International day for religious freedom. Around us, we find people who have different religions. Christians go to the church, Muslims go to the Mosque, Hindus go to the temple. In this clip we are going to see five children from five different religions - Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu and Buddhism - as they eat breakfast, get dressed and go to their places of worship.

5 kids, 5 religions

Ask kids to stop for a few seconds to think about what they saw.

Reflective Thought

Everyone has the right to choose and practise a religion. We should never judge, make fun of, mistreat and/or hurt others because they practise a different religion than ours. We are to respect everyone because everyone should be free to talk to God in different ways.


Prayer

Dear God we thank you for your love and for being always with us. Help us to always respect each other's religion and beliefs. Please forgive us if we ever mistreated someone because he/she looks different or practises a different religion than the one we practise. Please help all of those who are being hurt because of their religion. Amen.
