Redemptoristine Sisters in The Monastery of St Alphonsus
First Year Retreat - 30th Jan

  • Many thanks to the Redemptoristine Sisters in The Monastery of St Alphonsus who gave us a warm welcome last Friday.

  • The Sisters provided lovely refreshments after the mass and were delighted to take the time to chat with the students.


Catholic School Week 2015
Thoughts for Each Day

  • Monday: I am just one of many in my school community. There are many voices, many personalities, many people. But my voice is also important. My personality is unique and contributes to my school community in a distinctive way. Without me, our entire school community would be different. I am grateful for the ways in which I am different from everyone else. I thank God for the blessed imprint I leave on this place of learning. Help me to positively influence those around me through my special characteristics that make me who I am. With God's help, I pray that those who meet me will always feel at peace in my company.

  • Tuesday: We experience Christ in the celebration of the Eucharist. This then gives us strength to bring this experience to our lives outside of the church building. We must ask ourselves: have we shown kindness towards others? Have we stopped people from gossiping? Have we challenged bullying behaviour? Have we kept our promises? Have we reached out to people who have been excluded by others? Have we offered words of welcome to new members of our school community? By doing these difficult things, we live out the experience of the Eucharist in our daily lives.

  • Wednesday: Religion is not about the individual ; it is about community. Our religious beliefs must be lived through our actions. In our Catholic schools the Good News of Jesus; love must guide all that we do, to help us as individuals and as a community to respond to the needs of others, knowing that in doing so we are both responding to Jesus himself and building the Kingdom of God on earth.

  • Thursday: Today, let us be grateful for the gift from God of our true uniqueness and pray for the openness to search for our place in the world. Each of us have our own talents and skills ; some of us are sporty, some are musical and some are academic. Today let us think about how we use our gifts to our full potential.

  • Friday: Today, we celebrate the Good News of the Gospel. Let us live the joy of the Gospel in all that we do. May we learn from this and be a light for others, today and every day.
