Weekly Assembly

Week 2

2 - 6 November 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

I hope you all had a restful break during these past mid-term holidays. These past days remind us of two paths in life which one day we all experience; the paths of dead and life. The culture of respecting the dead is growing among us as we are going to see in this link:

What is Day of the Dead? - National Geographic

Ask kids to stop for a few seconds to think whether they respect others or not.

Reflective Thought

These celebrations remind us of the immense value and impact our life has on earth. Our spirit carries on. Our vibes and beliefs stay alive in the hearts, minds and actions of those whom we met during our life on Earth. Honouring the dead is very popular in various cultures worldwide and it promotes the good practice of paying respect to those who were dear to us and passed away. One way in which we are going to show respect for the dead, this morning, along this month and throughout the rest of our lives is by praying for them to rest in Eternal Peace.


Prayer

O merciful God, we ask you to grant unto all souls eternal rest, let your perpetual light shine upon them.
