St. Francis of Assisi school has been promoting peace through an amazing project this year. Staff and students are exploring a peace curriculum. The project began with some time being set aside each week for meditative prayer on Gospel stories. This gave the students and staff a greater appreciation for a peaceful time in their week while getting to know Jesus, the Prince of Peace better.
The next phase of the study consisted of a detailed study of the peace pledge that all planned to take. Each week one phrase of the pledge was highlighted by an age-appropriate lesson. All of the phrases had been studied by the end of Advent.
