CATHOLIC LIFE OF OUR SCHOOL
Catholic Voice Magazine
Some of our Year 6 pupils are preparing to make the sacrament of Confirmation on 20th November at Holy Family Church. Please keep them and their families in your prayers. Please pray for Ruby, Muiread, Marie, Robyn, Felicity and Noah who are our Year 6 pupils preparing for this sacrament.
October is the month which is dedicated to Mary, the mother of God. We pray the holy Rosary to thank Mary for saying 'Yes' to God. We ask Mary, through the Rosary, to help us to say 'yes' to God as much as we can.
Our Key Stage 1 and key Stage 2 Rosary groups say a decade of the Rosary every day during playtimes, to ask Mary to help us all be more like Jesus, kind and loving to everyone.

Fr Jim explained that we are marked with ashes to remind us that we must turn away from all things that remind us about our bad choices. As humans we are all capable of making wrong choices but lent is a time to think about how we can change to become closer to God.
