Key Stage 2

The greatest commandment of all
"Listen Israel, the Lord our God is the one Lord, and you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: You must love your neighbour as yourself."

Mark 12:29-30

"The whole liturgical life of the Church revolves around the Eucharistic sacrifice and the sacraments which give and celebrate the life of God’s grace in us. In the words and actions of the sacraments it is Christ who acts to communicate the grace that each sacrament signifies."
