Bible Story Week: Read! Reflect! Respond!


At his homily in the Sistine Chapel on the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord, Pope Francis said, "God, like a good father and a good mother, wants to give good things to his children". And what is this nourishing food that God gives us? It is his Word: his Word makes us grow, it enables us to bear good fruit in life, just as the rain and snow imbue the earth, making it fruitful (cf. Is 55:10-11).

Starting on the Feast of Pentecost, Primary Schools throughout the Derry Diocese will celebrate Bible Story Week and will focus on the stories of Jesus.
