Faith Council Confirmation Prayer—By Alexandrea

O God,

May we ask you to fill us with the Holy Spirit, enabling us to renew the face of the Earth. May all the people of the world use faithfulness and generosity as your Son, Our Lord, did. We hope that all of your people rejoice in happiness and joy. Please give us the same fire you gave your followers, the Apostles of Christ, on Pentecost so we may be truly wise in our faith. We all wish to become one of your true disciples and always think of others and how you feel. Give us the knowledge of your faith that we may learn from you and give us the gift of piety. If one will ever insult you, O lord, we shall use the gift of fortitude. May all the saint’s chosen today guide us through our lives as you did them. Soon we shall all be you true disciples.

Through Christ Our Lord, Amen

Feast of St. Catherine of Siena
Monday 29th April 2019
This is a very special day in the life
of our school and it will start with a
whole school mass at St. Catherine’s
Church. During the afternoon
classes will come off their normal
timetable and instead will take part
in cross curricular activities linked
with our patron saint. St. Catherine.


As we all know St. Catherine was from Siena in
Italy and therefore we will be asking pupils and
staff to wear the colours of the Italian flag on
this day - Green, white and red. More details to
follow in next weeks newsletter.

                                                                                                                  

Catholic Values & Virtues Awards
Our focus this half term is about how we can grow to become ‘Learned and Wise’. In the words of Matthew 7:24 ‘Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like the wise man who built his house on rock.’ As we read and talk about the life of Jesus, we are trying to learn lessons that will help us make wise decisions in our own lives for the good of ourselves and others.

VALUES AND VIRTUES

Our Values and Virtues for the second half of the Spring Term are LEARNED AND WISE

We hope our pupils will grow by being— Learned, finding God in all things; and wise in the ways they use their learning for the common good... 

We will help our children to grow in school by the breadth and depth of the curriculum; by excellence of teaching, and the creation of opportunities to become more learned and wise.

 

Catholic Virtues this term September 2018

Compassionate and Loving Dear Lord,

Guide us to follow in your way by being compassionate towards others, near and far, especially the less fortunate. That we may understand that many in our world suffer poverty, injustice and violence, through no fault of their own. We strive to show our love for those that suffer, through both our words and our actions.

Amen

The focus of the prayer life of the school this half term will be on how we grow to be more eloquent and truthful in what we say of ourselves, about one another and about the world we live in. Children will be encouraged to understand and articulate their emotions, beliefs and questions and to be truthful in the way they represent themselves and speak about the world.

The Holy Rosary

The month of October is dedicated to the Holy Rosary, one of the best known of all Catholic devotions. October includes the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary (October 7th).

The best way to celebrate the month is, of course, to pray the Rosary. During our FS / KS1 Prayer Service, the children were able to see how the rosary beads are used for prayer: Vanessa “It was peaceful and little children enjoyed the story about loving. We had our rosary beads on the altar because it is the month of the Rosary.” Daniella “It was special because we sat in a circle, like class based worship; we had a statue of Mary, rosary beads and pictures of families showing love.” Bhuvaan “We shared a story about loving our family and friends and we prayed for our friends in school.” Charlotte “We had big rosary beads and Mrs Finnegan read us a story about loving our family.”
