St Anne’s Catholic School, Southampton

Fasting week: Our CAFOD Young Leaders are also fundraising in the canteen this week. They are encouraging students to decline a piece of their lunch pack as an act of fasting and school will be making a donation to CAFOD for every student who gets involved. Unfortunately, I don’t have any photos yet as we are just starting this week.

Prayer week: This year we are running a school version of 24/7 prayer during w/b 21st March. We have planned a total transformation of our Chapel to create an interactive space where students can explore and walk through the Lord’s prayer in a variety of different ways. We are really excited about this at St Anne’s. We have lots of parents on board to help us with creating the space and coming in to pray with us. At the end of the week Father Luca will be leading us in a prayer celebration with parents, staff and governors. I would love to send you some photos and reflections later in Lent.

Almsgiving: In the last week of the school term, we have planned an Almsgiving week. Every day there will be some form of giving within our community. We will be doing things such as a random acts of kindness day, a non-school uniform day, a talent show, foodbank collections and much more.

This is amongst other great things that our girls have been getting up to, to further Catholic life and mission…
