Year 9 girls visit Ampleforth Abbey for a 48 hour retreat. The retreat was led by Fr Bede, a monk at Ampleforth who has long standing connections to our school. The girls had a fabulous time learning more about the lives of the monks, exploring deeper questions they had about faith and building friendships. They were a credit to their families and our school.
Fr Bede commented on how impressed he was with the depth of the questions they asked him - questions he would have expected of Sixth Form students not Year 9! Here are some of their questions for you to ponder on.....
- Has there ever been a time when you didn’t think God was on your side?
- is there anything you could not forgive or anyone you could not pray for?
- What more could we do to help refugees?
