Devotion to Mary
Our Lady of Lourdes
Feast Day - 11th February
October is the month of Mary. In Reception we are learning that Mary is Jesus' mother. There are many different images and devotions to honour Mary. In Reception, our special devotion is "Our Lady of Lourdes". We listened to the story of St Bernadette. We made a large collage to to help us pray to Our Lady of Lourdes. We are starting to learn the 'Hail Mary'.
On 11th February, we made our own grotto pictures of Our Lady of Lourdes and displayed them around the altar. We prayed one decade of the rosary.
This devotion links very well later in the year, when in May we learn about the rosary, take part in the May Procession and make our own Rosary Beads.
