Celebrating prayer and ritual in schools

On 9 April, visiting presenters Margie Abbott and Jen Callanan held a workshop at Rahamim entitled Ecological Conversion: Celebrating Prayer and Ritual in Schools

This program challenged those involved in facilitating prayer and ritual in school settings to find new and inclusive ways to express them, calling to mind Pope Francis and the message of Laudato Si’. Using language, symbols and actions that reflect our new story of the evolving universe and our place in this single, sacred Earth community, participants applied helpful frameworks for creating contemporary prayer and rituals.

By the end of the day, participants were able to share their own newly-composed prayers, giving rise to fresh, diverse expressions for the sacred in our midst.
