St Gilbert's R.C.

Primary School

Inspired by St. Gilbert, as God's family, we are growing strong in love and faith, becoming the best we can be.


Read the story from the Bible of when Mary and Joseph took Jesus to the Temple to thank God for their son.




  • Who are the special people in this story?
  • What did Simeon say about Jesus?
  • What do you think this meant?
  • How do you think Jesus brings light to the world?
  • How can we bring joy to others?


We read this story in preparation for the Feast of the presentation of Jesus on the 2nd February.


Can you draw some candles, write on the candle Jesus is the light of the world and illustrate them.
