Catholic Identity – 4 April 2019

 

Caritas

Many staff and students have been actively supporting the Project Compassion Campaign. Some students have sold raffle tickets, others have helped run a BBQ, others have shaken boxes in the school yard. You can help too:

 

Enhancing Catholic Identity Project

Thanks to all parents for completing the survey of our Catholic Identity. Our staff and students have completed the surveys. We will be sent the results later in the year. Our aim as a Catholic school is to develop students with Post-Critical faith. This type of faith can engage with a secular world that challenges religion in a positive and confident way. This occurs when our students are able to see that there are arguments not to believe in God, and then choose to believe. This occurs through open dialogue with the world. They can see God’s actions through symbol and connect with the meaning and purpose of community life and the story of God in our world.

 

Stations of the Cross

Tomorrow our three Campuses will celebrate the Stations of the Cross. Our stations have been prepared by a large number of students who have had input into the interpretation of the Way of the Cross. We look forward to our time of prayer, music, singing, sharing of creative and artistic expressions of this central story of our faith.

 

Vinnies Bush Fire Drive

Our thanks go to staff, students and parents who have responded to the call for hamper items for the survivors of the recent Bushfires. Vinnies will be collecting the hampers form the Officer Campus tomorrow.

 

Prayer

As we move closer to the celebration of Holy Week and Easter, let us pray for our world. In Jesus we have the fullness of humanity. God has visited us and shown us the way to the fullness of life.

You died, Jesus, but the source of life flowed from you for souls, and the ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world. Eternal Father, we offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in amends for our sins and those of the whole world.

Amen.
