A couple of weeks ago, the Castlerigg team visited Blackpool. We always love every opportunity to visit Blackpool and this time was no exception with time to walk down the Prom, do a bit of shopping and visit the zoo. We were hosted very generously by Fr John Winstanley at St Kentigern’s and over our week, we worked with seven primary schools. We don’t usually work with such a young age group. Many of the children had recently made their first holy communions, and we followed the theme of Jesus, the Bread of Life. Through games and fun, and by using drama and role play, the team helped to explain to the children how the events of Jesus’s life are made present in the Mass. This is what some of the children from St Kent’s had to say: ‘My favourite part was when we watched the drama performed by the team. We saw lots of different stories from Jesus' life. It was fun’ (Natasha); ‘I enjoyed it because we got to act out what happened in Jesus's life and we learnt about what Jesus said at the Passover meal. Then we thought about the Mass and how it is similar to the Passover’ (Jac); and, ‘At the end we had to do a puzzle and we all had to work together to complete it. It was a picture of Jesus carrying a lamb and we had to think about what it means.  I think it is telling us about the story of the lost sheep and that he will forgive our sins and go into God's arms’ (Caine).
