My soul friend is Rachel
Today we celebrated St Patrick’s day, during the mass we made promises to our soul friends saying that we would take care of them and commit that we would always be their for them even in times of trouble.
A soul friend is a person who you can talk too and also who you can rely on, a soul friend is a person who you can tell all your issues too, you can even ask them for help for when you are struggling with your home learning or school work. Having a soul friend is like starting a new relationship with someone you have never met before in your life. The relationship that you have with your new soul friend at school is like you having your own relationship with your own biological brother or sister.
St pius x catholic school was introduced to soul friends a long time ago by the people who built this school which were the Holy Faith sisters they were the first group of nuns who introduced soul friends to our school, we have been modeling this tradition from Ireland since 1958, all the way to this year we are in now.
The soul friends tradition that we have modeled for so many years was from the island Ireland.
We have certain things to do like we have mass together and we also make promises to each other, it is those kind of questions like are you going to commit to look after your soul friend and much more.
My Soul Friend is Rachel, she is a kind, active and she is a sweet person. She likes to talk about her learning and she likes to play a lot, she is a wonderful person her favourite colour is purple and she likes to eat lollies & snacks. Rachel is loud only around me, she is a confident little girl but she never shows it in front of people.
Below is an beautiful & special present that I have got from my wonderful Soul Friend Rachel.
XOXOXOXOX Thank you very much Rachel!
