CCS Family
What do you think these women are thinking?
Catholic Children's Society
Lenten Appeal 2017
Lent is a time when we grow closer to God. Over the next six weeks, we will be looking at different actions we can take to grow closer to God.
Together, we will:

Draw a picture of a family
Compare your picture with the person next to you. How are your pictures similar? How are they different?
What makes a family? Together, write down a list of things that make a family.
We do not have to be related to be part of a family. . .
What does Jesus say about family?
Jesus was still talking to the people when his mother and brothers arrived. They stood outside, asking to speak with him. So one of the people there said to him, “Look, your mother and brothers are standing outside, and they want to speak with you.”

Jesus answered, “Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?” Then he pointed to his disciples and said, “Look! Here are my mother and my brothers! Whoever does what my Father in heaven wants is my brother, my sister, and my mother.”
Matthew 12 46-50
What makes a family?
The Catholic Children's Society (CCS) is a local charity that works to help children and families living in poverty.
What does this map show?
Members of the CCS family can be found across the Westminster Diocese. Can you find them?
These are not the only members of the CCS family . . .
All of these schools are part of the CCS family!
Last year, 134 schools across the Diocese joined together for the CCS Lent Appeal.
This year, we are hoping that even more schools can connect as part of the CCS family, helping our brothers and sisters in need.
How can we help our brothers and sisters in need?
You will be given a CCS collection box.
Please try and raise money to help children like Nasir, Emily and Sara this year!
CCS Family
Family Centres
Crisis Fund
By spending 40 days and 40 nights without food, Jesus wanted to understand the suffering and pain of others.
How did Jesus try to understand others?
Do you know which story this is?
Jesus spent 40 days and 40 nights in the desert without food or water to prepare himself for God's ministry.
It is important that we follow Jesus' example and try to understand the difficulties other people face.
Your Task
Hannah, Michael, Paige and Seb all live in the Diocese of Westminster.
You will each be given information about one of these people.
Imagine that you are that person.
Read the information box at the top of your information pack.
Remember- you must stick to your budget!
You need to use all the information in your pack to decide:

How much you are going to spend on rent?
How much you will spend on transport costs?
How much will your bills cost?
How much will your mobile phone payments be?
How much will you spend on clothing for your family?
How much will your family activities cost?
How much will holidays cost?

Extension Questions
If you had an extra £300 a month, what would you spend it on?

Were you surprised by the price of anything?
Have you stuck to your budget?
Did you find it difficult to stick to your budget?
Now imagine this. You are ready to move into your new home, you are sticking to your budget. But then . . .
It breaks down. The mechanic needs £600 to fix it.
Did you decide to get a scooter/car/van?
Hannah/ Michael/ Paige . . .

Your child needs a new school uniform that costs £100. It will not be covered by your clothing budget.

You realise that your new home needs furniture. It will cost at least £500 to furnish your home.
Hannah/ Michael/ Paige/ Seb . . .

It is a cold winter. Your gas and electricity bills are £200 higher than expected.
Hannah/ Michael/ Paige/ Seb . . .

Hannah/ Michael/ Seb

You and your partner find out that you are going to have another baby. Do you need a new home? More money for shopping? Clothing? Leisure activities?
How is your budget looking now?
Change your budget to meet these new costs.
Understanding Others
Many of the families CCS work with face these difficulties.
High living costs lead many families into poverty. Most people find some months difficult. But for the families CCS work with, every month is a struggle.
With your help, CCS can support families across the Diocese of Westminster. These families may come from your borough, your town or your school.
The Crisis Fund can help families who are in need of essential items, such as basic furniture, food or clothing.
You can help families living in poverty by raising money for CCS this Lent.
The CCS Crisis Fund provides emergency help for families living in poverty.
The Crisis Fund
This is Paige's daughter, Jenny
Paige, Jenny and their family were helped by the Crisis Fund.
Why should we give to those in need?
Can you think of a time when you have given to those in need?
Matthew 25.35-40
"I was hungry and you fed me, thirsty and you gave me a drink; I was a stranger and you received me in your homes, naked and you clothed me; I was sick and you took care of me, in prison and you visited me.'
Jesus said . . .
The righteous will then answer him, 'When, Lord, did we ever see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you a drink? When did we ever see you a stranger and welcome you in our homes, or naked and clothe you? When did we ever see you sick or in prison, and visit you?' The King will reply, 'I tell you, whenever you did this for one of the least important of these members of my family, you did it for me!'"
The Parable of the Good Samaritan
A teacher of the Law came up and tried to trap Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, "what must I do to receive eternal life?”

Jesus answered him, “What do the Scriptures say? How do you interpret them?”

The man answered, “'Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind’; and ‘Love your neighbour as you love yourself.’"

“You are right,” Jesus replied; "do this and you will live.”

But the teacher of the Law wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “Who is my neighbour?”
Jesus answered, “There was once a man who was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho when robbers attacked him, stripped him, and beat him up, leaving him half dead.

It so happened that a priest was going down that road; but when he saw the man, he walked on by, on the other side.

In the same way a Levite also came along, went over and looked at the man, and then walked on by, on the other side.

But a Samaritan who was travelling that way came upon the man, and when he saw him, his heart was filled with pity. He went over to him, poured oil and wine on his wounds and bandaged them; then he put the man on his own animal and took him to an inn, where he took care of him.
The next day he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper. 'Take care of him,' he told the innkeeper, 'and when I come back this way, I will pay you whatever else you spend on him.' ”

And Jesus concluded, “In your opinion, which one of these three acted like a neighbour towards the man attacked by the robbers?”

The teacher of the law answered, “The one who was kind to him.” Jesus replied, “You go, then, and do the same.”

Luke 10.25-37
How did the Good Samaritan act in a giving way to someone in need?
Who was the Good Samaritan in Oliver's Story?
CCS were able to help Oliver because of your fundraising during Lent last year.
What could you do to help more children like Oliver this year?
Spend two minutes thinking about something that happened to you today that has made you happy.
Our lives are often so busy that we forget to pause and think.
When we reflect we take the time to pause and think.
Reflection is an important part of faith.
When we spend time reflecting, we grow closer to God.
We are now going to spend time reflecting on an important part of the Easter story.
Close your eyes. Listen carefully.
On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus and asked him, “Where do you want us to get the Passover meal ready for you?”

“Go to a certain man in the city,” he said to them, “and tell him: ‘The Teacher says, My hour has come; my disciples and I will celebrate the Passover at your house.’”

The disciples did as Jesus had told them and prepared the Passover meal.
Matthew 26:17-30 & John 13.1-9, 12-17

The Passover Meal
Why should we be giving?
Jesus led a very busy life! Write down all of the events that you can remember from Jesus' life up to the Last Supper.
How many events did you write down?
Jesus prayed before, during or after each of these events.

Praying was an essential part of Jesus' life.
Jesus prays in Gethsemane
Matthew 26.36-46
Jesus' Death
Matthew 27.45-48
Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to them, "Sit here while I go over there and pray." He took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee. Grief and anguish came over him, and he said to them "The sorrow in my heart is so great that it almost crushes me. Stay here and keep watch with me."

He went a little farther on, threw himself face downwards on the ground, and prayed, "My Father, if it is possible, take this cup of suffering from me! Yet not what I want, but what you want."
Then he returned to the three disciples and found them asleep; and he said to Peter, "How is it that you three were not able to keep watch with me even for one hour? Keep watch and pray that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."

Once more Jesus went away and prayed, "My Father, if this cup of suffering cannot be taken away unless I drink it, your will be done." He returned once more and found the disciples asleep; they could not keep their eyes open.

Matthew 26.36-46
Why is Jesus praying?
The soldiers led Jesus away, and as they were going, they met a man from Cyrene named Simon who was coming into the city from the country. They seized him, put the cross on him, and made him carry it behind Jesus.

A large crowd of people followed him; among them were some women who were weeping and wailing for him. Jesus turned to them and said, “Women of Jerusalem! Don't cry for me, but for yourselves and your children. For the days are coming when people will say, ‘How lucky are the women who never had children, who never bore babies, who never nursed them!’ That will be the time when people will say to the mountains, ‘Fall on us!’ and to the hills, ‘Hide us!’ For if such things as these are done when the wood is green, what will happen when it is dry?”

Two other men, both of them criminals, were also led out to be put to death with Jesus. When they came to the place called “The Skull,” they crucified Jesus there, and the two criminals, one on his right and the other on his left. Jesus said, “Forgive them, Father! They don't know what they are doing."

At noon the whole country was covered with darkness, which lasted for three hours. At about three o’clock Jesus cried out with a loud shout, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachtani?”which means, “My God, my God why did you abandon me?”

Some of the people standing there heard him and said, “He is calling for Elijah!” One of them ran up at once, took a sponge, soaked it in cheap wine, put it on the end of a stick, and tried to make him drink it.

But the others said, “Wait, let us see if Elijah is coming to save him!”

Jesus again gave a loud cry and breathed his last.

Jesus' Crucifixion
Luke 23. 26-34
Why is Jesus praying?
Why is Jesus praying?
In your workbook, write to God about your fears or worries.
Jesus prayed to God at the end of his life because he was scared and wanted God to comfort him.

He also prayed to God to ask him to help others.
What are you scared or worried about?
Who needs our help?
This Lent, we are raising money for the Catholic Children's Society (CCS)
CCS help local children who are living in poverty.
What expression do you think is on this woman's face?
What is happening in this picture?
Very early on Sunday morning the women went to the tomb, carrying the spices they had prepared. They found the stone rolled away from the entrance to the tomb, so they went in; but they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. They stood there puzzled about this, when suddenly two men in bright shining clothes stood by them. Full of fear, the women bowed down to the ground, as the men said to them, “Why are you looking among the dead for one who is alive? He is not here; he has been raised. Remember what he said to you while he was in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be handed over to sinners, be crucified, and three days later rise to life.’”
Then the women remembered his words, returned from the tomb, and told all these things to the eleven disciples and all the rest. The women were Mary Magdalene, Joanna, and Mary the mother of James; they and the other women with them told these things to the apostles.

But the apostles thought that what the women said was nonsense, and they did not believe them. But Peter got up and ran to the tomb; he bent down and saw the grave cloths but nothing else. Then he went back home amazed at what had happened.
On that same day two of Jesus' followers were going to a village named Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem, and they were talking to each other about all the things that had happened. As they talked and discussed, Jesus himself drew near and walked along with them; they saw him, but somehow did not recognize him. Jesus said to them, “What are you talking about to each other, as you walk along?”

They stood still, with sad faces. One of them, named Cleopas, asked him, “Are you the only visitor in Jerusalem who doesn't know the things that have been happening there these last few days?”
“What things?” he asked.

“The things that happened to Jesus of Nazareth,” they answered. “This man was a prophet and was considered by God and by all the people to be powerful in everything he said and did. Our chief priests and rulers handed him over to be sentenced to death, and he was crucified. And we had hoped that he would be the one who was going to set Israel free! Besides all that, this is now the third day since it happened. Some of the women of our group surprised us; they went at dawn to the tomb, but could not find his body. They came back saying they had seen a vision of angels who told them that he is alive. Some of our group went to the tomb and found it exactly as the women had said, but they did not see him.”

Then Jesus said to them, “How foolish you are, how slow you are to believe everything the prophets said! Was it not necessary for the Messiah to suffer these things and then to enter his glory?” And Jesus explained to them what was said about himself in all the Scriptures, beginning with the books of Moses and the writings of all the prophets.
As they came near the village to which they were going, Jesus acted as if he were going farther; but they held him back, saying, “Stay with us; the day is almost over and it is getting dark.” So he went in to stay with them. He sat down to eat with them, took the bread, and said the blessing; then he broke the bread and gave it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, but he disappeared from their sight. They said to each other, “Wasn't it like a fire burning in us when he talked to us on the road and explained the Scriptures to us?”

They got up at once and went back to Jerusalem, where they found the eleven disciples gathered together with the others and saying, “The Lord is risen indeed! He has appeared to Simon!”

The two then explained to them what had happened on the road, and how they had recognized the Lord when he broke the bread.
While the two were telling them this, suddenly the Lord himself stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.”

They were terrified, thinking that they were seeing a ghost. But he said to them, “Why are you alarmed? Why are these doubts coming up in your minds? Look at my hands and my feet, and see that it is I myself. Feel me, and you will know, for a ghost doesn't have flesh and bones, as you can see I have.”

He said this and showed them his hands and his feet. They still could not believe, they were so full of joy and wonder; so he asked them, “Do you have anything here to eat?” They gave him a piece of cooked fish, which he took and ate in their presence.
Then he said to them, “These are the very things I told you about while I was still with you: everything written about me in the Law of Moses, the writings of the prophets, and the Psalms had to come true.”

Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures, and said to them, “This is what is written: the Messiah must suffer and must rise from death three days later, and in his name the message about repentance and the forgiveness of sins must be preached to all nations, beginning in Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. And I myself will send upon you what my Father has promised. But you must wait in the city until the power from above comes down upon you.”
Then he led them out of the city as far as Bethany, where he raised his hands and blessed them. As he was blessing them, he departed from them and was taken up into heaven. They worshipped him and went back into Jerusalem, filled with great joy, and spent all their time in the Temple giving thanks to God.

Dear Lord,

Thank you for all that we have. Guide us as we work to help our brothers and sisters this Lent, connecting together to grow closer to you.

The Temptation of Jesus in the Desert
Then the spirit led Jesus into the desert to be tempted by the Devil.
After spending 40 days and 40 nights without food, Jesus was hungry.
Then the Devil came to him and said, “If you are God’s Son,
order these stones into bread.” But Jesus answered,
“The scripture says ‘Human beings cannot live on bread
alone, but need every word that God speaks.’”

Then the Devil took Jesus to Jerusalem, the Holy City, set him on the
highest point of the Temple, and said to him, "If you are God’s Son,
throw yourself down, for the scripture says: ‘God will give orders to
his angels about you; they will hold you up with their hands, so that
not even your feet will be hurt on the stones.’” Jesus answered,
“But the scripture also says, ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'"

Then the Devil took Jesus to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in all their greatness. “All this I will give you,” the Devil said, “if you kneel down and worship me.” Then Jesus answered,
“Go away, Satan! The scripture says, ‘Worship the
Lord your God and serve only him!’”

Then the Devil left Jesus; and angels came and helped him.

The Temptation of Jesus
Matthew 4.1-11
Throughout his life, Jesus travelled to many places, working to understand the difficulties experienced by those in need.
Helping those in need
Dear Lord,

Thank you for all that we have. Guide us as we work to help our brothers and sisters this Lent, understanding the difficulties of others to grow closer to you.

Dear Lord,

Thank you for all that we have. Guide us as we work to help our brothers and sisters this Lent, giving to others to grow closer to you.

The Good Samaritan
What is reflection?
During the meal Jesus said, “I tell you, one of you will betray me.”

The disciples were very upset and began to ask him, one after the other, “Surely, Lord, you don't mean me?”

Then he took a cup, gave thanks to God, and gave it to them. “Drink it, all of you,” he said; “this is my blood, which seals God's covenant, my blood poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. I tell you, I will never again drink this wine until the day I drink the new wine with you in my Father's Kingdom.”

Then they sang a hymn and went out to the Mount of Olives.
Dear Lord,

Thank you for all that we have. Guide us as we work to help our brothers and sisters this Lent, growing closer to you through reflection.

Dear Lord,

Thank you for all that we have. Guide us as we work to help our brothers and sisters this Lent, growing closer to you through prayer.

In your workbook, write down three giving things that you will do before Easter
I will give to others by . . .
How can we be giving like the Good Samaritan?
We will also be exploring how we can grow together by becoming part of the CCS family. Members of the CCS family live across our Diocese, helping brothers and sisters in need.
Join the CCS family and make a difference this Lent!

When we connect as a family we can really make a difference!
How do CCS help?
Any Head Teacher in the Diocese can apply to the Crisis Fund to help their pupils
Over 250 families have been helped by the Crisis Fund. By collecting money in your Lenten box, we can help even more!
What is Jesus saying?
Oliver's Story
Oliver is nine years old. He lives with his mum and five year old brother. In October last year, the family’s landlord decided to increase their rent. The family did not have enough money to pay their rent and were told they had to leave their home within a month.

They managed to find a new two bedroom flat that the family could afford, but the flat was completely unfurnished. Oliver’s family moved in, but Oliver’s mum did not have enough money to buy any furniture.

For weeks, Oliver, his mum and little brother slept huddled in blankets on the floor, without even a mattress to sleep on. They had no fridge to keep fresh food and no oven to cook meals. All of Oliver’s mum’s money had to go on food and household bills.

Oliver and his little brother were sleeping very badly and were coming into school hungry.

Oliver’s Head Teacher was very worried. He arranged a meeting with Oliver’s mum to chat about what had been happening. Oliver’s Head Teacher contacted CCS and applied for help from the Crisis Fund.

CCS were able to buy the family beds, bedding, a fridge, and an oven.

Why did Jesus wash your feet?
During the meal Jesus said, “I tell you, one of you will betray me.” How did you feel when he said this?
What did Jesus mean when he said “I tell you, I will never again drink this wine until the day I drink the new wine with you in my Father's Kingdom”?
How did you feel when Jesus said this?

Why do you think it is important to reflect?
This week, try to reflect every day.
Spend a few minutes just stopping and thinking.
Perhaps about something that has happened in your life.
Or something that happened in Jesus' life.
As Jesus approached the end of his life, he continued to turn to prayer. . .
Complete your prayer by asking God to help these children, our brothers and sisters.
Many of the children who CCS help feel very scared and alone.
Ruby is 11 years old. Ruby lived with her mum and dad. Last year her dad became very ill, and had to be taken to a special hospital in Birmingham. Ruby and her mum found it difficult to travel to Birmingham. Ruby’s mum was working three jobs to keep their home. They did not have a car and could not afford the train or bus tickets.

Ruby’s Head Teacher found out what was happening and contacted CCS for help.

CCS were able to use money from the Crisis Fund to help pay for transport costs for Ruby and her mother.

Sadly, after a month of being in hospital, Ruby’s dad passed away. The family were trying to grieve but were stressed and worried about trying to find over £1000 for the funeral.

Ruby’s Head Teacher contacted CCS again. CCS were able to give the family money towards the funeral costs.
Ruby's Story
Let us pray for Ruby and our other brothers and sisters this Lent.
Last year CCS were able to help 5818 people! We were able to help so many people because of your fundraising.
You are going to work in teams.
Each team will be given a copy of the Parable of the Good Samaritan and five questions to answer.
You will be given one question at a time. When you have found the answer to the question in the parable, write down the answer underneath the question.

One of you will need to come to the front of the classroom to collect the next question.
Only correct and detailed answers will be accepted!
The team that completes all five questions first wins!

A Time to Celebrate
We can also celebrate how you have given to others during Lent!
Turn to Week 3 in your workbook
Can you complete your table?
I will give to others by . . .
Jesus rose from the table, took off his outer garment,
and tied a towel round his waist. Then he poured some
water into a basin and began to wash the disciples'
feet and dry them with the towel round his waist.

He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, "Are you going to wash my feet, Lord?"

Jesus answered him, "You do not understand now what I am doing, but you will understand later."

Peter declared, "Never at any time will you wash my feet!"
"If I do not wash your feet," Jesus answered, "you will no longer be my disciple."

Simon Peter answered, "Lord, do not wash only my feet, then! Wash my hands and head, too! . . .

. . . After Jesus had washed their feet, he put his outer garment back on and returned to his place at the table. "Do you understand what I have just done for you?" he asked.

"You call me Teacher and Lord, and it is right that you do so, because that is what I am. I, your Lord and Teacher, have just washed your feet. You, then, should wash one another's feet.

I have set an example for you, so that you will do just what I have done for you. I am telling you the truth: slaves are never greater than their master, and messengers are never greater than the one who sent them. Now that you will know this truth, how happy you will be if you put it into practice!"

Jesus answered, “One who dips his bread in the dish with me will betray me. The Son of Man will die as the Scriptures say he will, but how terrible for that man who will betray the Son of Man! It would have been better for that man if he had never been born!”

Judas, the traitor, spoke up. “Surely, Teacher, you don't mean me?” he asked.

Jesus answered, “So you say.”
While they were eating, Jesus took a piece of bread, gave a prayer of thanks, broke it, and gave it to his disciples. “Take and eat it,” he said; “this is my body.”
