The Catholic Ethos in the Covid-19 Pandemic
The Tablet have released an article written by our own Collegiate Principal Ms Shireen Razey all about our Sixth Forms response to the Coronavirus and what we have been doing as a community to support those in need and give back to our NHS.
The article highlights all our Sixth Form has done, between staff and students, to ensure everyone feels supported in these times of adversity. Along with college prayer everyday our Chaplains are working hard to ensure all our staff and students are awoken each day with spiritual messages to make these isolated days less lonely. Our prayer group at midday and staff reflection allows everyone to appreciate what we have and value the friends and family we all have helping us through this time.
Our ample charity work has never been so prevalent and we have raised over £1000 towards charities in need in our community. Ms Razey ends the article with this prayer which we hope provides comfort to everyone struggling during this time.
Christ the King Sixth Forms Prayer
God of Love,
As members of the Christ the King Sixth Form family we ask for your continued blessing upon our work and study. You are the source of all truth and wisdom.
May we experience in full the Life that you offer us each day, to become the best that we can be.
Let no distractions or fears prevent us from trusting in your endless care for us.
Shine your Light into our lives that we may become brighter beacons of faith, hope and love in our community.
We make this prayer through Christ the Lord.
