Members of the Ladies Ordinariate Group in Croydon and London, along with Ordinariate groups in Kent, Coventry, and elsewhere, are busy with a children's handwriting project which helps children to learn the Lord's Prayer. Sponsored by an ecumenical group, it offers and attractive and practical approach.
In the Lord's Prayer Project, a leaflet is sent to primary schools: we began with church-based schools, both Anglican and Catholic. It's essentially an artwork and handwriting project: the children write out the Lord's Prayer in good handwriting and decorate it any way they like. The teacher then parcels up all the work and posts it to us. Each participating child gets a small Gospel booklet with the Lord's Prayer on the inside cover and a space to sign his or her name. The best entries get prizes – attractive children's books from Christian publishers.
