7 - 11 December 2020

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

This morning I am going to remind you about the letter you are to send to St Nicholas or as most of you know him - Father Christmas. It is the time of the year when we think about presents. Let us take some time to watch this short film about a particular present.

The Present - Official

Reflective Thought

We feel happy when we give a present to someone and we see that they like the present. Saying thank you and meaning it when we receive a present is one way of showing respect towards the person who is giving us the present. It is nice to show respect because others dedicate time and energy to give us a present. We will be showing respect and we will be saying a big thank you, with our actions, when we care for the presents, we receive and make good use of them.

God is giving us a present all the time. This present is our life. We can show him that we appreciate this present by

a. respecting and taking care of ourselves and our lives,

b. by taking care and respect the lives of others,

c. by taking care and respect all nature and

d. by getting closer to him in our daily life especially during this time of advent.


Prayer

Dear God, we thank you for your present. We thank you for our lives. We thank you for making us all special in our own ways. You are an awesome God. Please help us to always respect and care for our life, the life of others and for the lives of all creatures. Amen
