The children loved learning about the shrine of Our Lady of All Nations in Holland. Sister Bridget and Sister Crescentia met with every class and answered questions and shared stories. Year 6 performed their beautiful liturgical dance of the Passion for our guests. Although the shrine is in Holland, the Nuns order is in Slovakia.
We are so grateful to the sisters for choosing our school and parish for their mission. They left us a present of a sewn, velcro hanging version of the image of Our Lady. The children enjoyed playing with this very much. The children were so polite and respectful during the day. Our visitors commented that our school is full of love and Jesus' values; that the children were 'alive' with learning and love; and that the staff were modelling the values to the children all through the day.
Our visitors enjoyed their days in Sheerness: visiting our school, St. Peter's School in Sittingbourne, Aylesford Priory and Sittingbourne Convent. They also enjoyed spending time with the Parish at Mass and the Bible Journaling group.
Perhaps we can one day visit them in Amsterdam.
