Advent 2021

Advent 2021

During Advent, we explored the 4 themes (Hope, Peace, Love and Joy) in a variety of ways including listening and responding to Holy Scripture. 


As a key theme this year, we focussed on how we at St Thomas' can live the Gospel Values daily;


Hope, resilience. Perseverance

Love, generosity

Non-violence, gentleness

Justice, gentleness


Compassion, kindness, service of neighbour

Simplicity, non-attachment to wealth

Humility, lack of ego, disinterest in status, dependence on God

Integrity, honesty, truth-telling

Preferential option for the lost and the least


When we displayed a particular value, adults gave us 'Advent Tokens'. These advent tokens were put into a raffle and, on the last day of term, over 15 Advent hampers were handed out! The hampers were created with staff donations.  

Year 5's Advent Messages


During Advent, Year 5's Big Question was 'Is Commitment Important?' 


We looked at what our mission is and how it related to the mission of the Church. As part of our mission at St Thomas' we decided to write Christmas cards to parishioners. We didn't simply wish them a merry Christmas, but really thought about the true meaning of Christmas.
