We featured on the Nottingham Diocesan Catholic Youth Service (NDCYS) live YouTube broadcast- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bEcIM8qUVZA&feature=youtu.be (around 29 minutes). The letter and children’s work was posted to Father Martin the same weekend.

The Wednesday Word
The children of Saint Mary’s each receive a weekly copy of the Wednesday Word.
Here is a message from Cardinal Vincent Nichols –
“I am pleased to offer a word of encouragement and endorsement for The Wednesday Word. Each Wednesday the materials supplied can help to: Develop a habit of prayer and reflection on the Word of God within the family; Form hearts and minds to hear and understand the Word of God the following Sunday; Put the Word of God into the home of every child in a Catholic school. I offer my prayers and encouragement not only to those who provide The Wednesday Word but also to all those who use it.”
Official Prayer for the Year
you walk alongside us
and speak to us throughout the Scriptures.
Your Son, Jesus Christ, listens to our hopes and fears
and shows us how to live for one another.
Send us the Holy Spirit to open our hearts and minds
so that we may be your witnesses throughout the world.
V. Your word is our path and your truth is our light.
R. This day and every day.
Our Lady of the Annunciation
