Google Classroom assignment - Mary prayer service

 

During the month of October we think about and honour Mary, the mother of Jesus. It is also important to make a special effort to pray the rosary. Look through the PowerPoint 'Mysteries of the rosary' that has been attached to the assignment on Google Classroom. Think: Why is this piece of scripture included as a mystery of the rosary? Why is this piece of scripture important to me? Use the Google Docs that you have been assigned called 'Gweddiwn planner' to plan your own Gweddiwn prayer service centred around Mary. You have been provided with some suggestions for each section but try and be as creative as possible. Make sure what you choose is suitable for the month of May. Write in full and detailed sentences in each box.
