Faith Council

 

Hello From Our Faith Council!

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

Y2 Class Mass - St. Francis

Friday 8th October
Today, Year Two walked to St Catherine of Siena Church to celebrate their first class Mass of the year. It was especially nice to be sat in Our Lady’s Chapel, since October is the month of the Holy Rosary. During Mass, we heard an introduction about St Francis’ feast day, which was on Monday. Father Mario’s homily taught us that St Francis was a very kind and helpful man, who liked to talk with animals. We were encouraged to think about how we help others, including animals, within our own lives. We enjoyed listening to children from our own class read special extracts of holy scripture, along with bidding prayers which they wrote themselves. We left Mass feeling happy and peaceful because we had spent the morning in the presence of Jesus. Now, we can’t wait for the next one!

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.
