Strands

Holy Spirit Strand - Term 2

When we come back to school in Term 2, we will begin the Holy Spirit Strand. Find some ideas below that you can do at home to help support your child's learning around the Holy Spirit strand. These are from the Family - Whanau book.

resource for parents

The Family-Whanau book is the 'go to' resource for parents to use when supporting their children with Catholic concepts.

It has ideas about how to pray at home, how to strengthen relationships via effective communication between children and parents, and gives you ideas about how you can incorporate Christian values and rituals into your home life.

It is a very valuable document to explore!

Ash Wednesday Colouring Pages

This feast day is February 14th this year. Mass will be celebrated at 10am at Our Lady Star of the Sea.

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent. It is time for us to reflect on our lives and to 'turn back to God'.

The ashes we receive, in the shape of a cross, remind us that Jesus died for us. The ashes come from the burnt palms from last year's Palm Sunday celebrations. Jesus was welcomed into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday as a hero and days later the same people who hailed Him King, condemned Him to death. We are reminded that we all make mistakes and despite this, Jesus still loves us, unconditionally.
