Once again pupils of the Mt Lambert RC School embarked on a project to help others; this time their deceased relatives and friends. All pupils were invited to write their own prayers for their departed loved ones. These were posted one week prior to the Feast of All Souls on a special ‘Prayer Wall’. Members of staff were also invited to post their prayers.
Pupils wrote prayers asking God to bless, forgive, love and take care of their departed relatives – mothers, fathers, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. Every day, pupils were reminded not to hesitate in praying and writing, since their departed loved ones depended on their help.
It was heartening to see pupils gathering around the Prayer Wall to read the prayers of their friends. They welcomed the opportunity to do this special act for their loved ones.
