A Prayer Service to Wrap Up a Research Project
Last week, Flintridge Sacred Heart Juniors did a prayer service to wrap-up their Research Project experience. The juniors each made a candle to remind them of the social justice experience they studied this summer. Then they wrote a prayer service as a class, with the theme of “Shining a Light on Injustices.” The group prayed that their hearts would remain on fire for these injustices so that their minds and bodies would do the work to create lasting change in this world.
The prayer service provided the students with the opportunity to explore the values and experiences of diverse background whilst focusing on the way that ethos and values are both constructed and experienced existentially. It also allowed them to build relationships across cultures, faiths and traditions as they worked collaboratively in teams, both within their own and even across school communities.
