Children first gathered in the main chapel for an interactive session led by Fr Reuben.

|Worries and fears|
On the fizzy forgiveness prayer space, they thought of forgiving others and wrote prayers for forgiveness which were later read during mass.

Children moved on the Jar of Life
prayer space. This helped them to fill their jar with priorities first represented by rocks, such as family, friends, faith, relationships, prayer, and health.
Children then thought about all other things that matter and that are enjoyable but are not important to have a meaningful life. These were represented by pebbles and sand respectively. They then filled their jar accordingly. They prayed to God to help them fill their jar with important and meaningful things first. When doing so, all other enjoyable things will also find their space in the Jar of Life!

All groups of children came together and participated enthusiastically during mass. They sang songs and read the prayers which were written by themselves during the Fizzy Forgiveness prayer activity.

Thanks be to God for the amazing half days at the Seminary and to the educators who accompanied the children on the respective days.
