Gospel Reading

John 16:12-15

Whatever the Father has is mine. The Spirit of truth will guide us.

 

 

 

Family Connection

 

Think of the last time you witnessed an act of selfless love in your family. Parents and caregivers of all kinds are called upon to act selflessly every day. Family life calls us to share selfless love with one another.

God is the model for us of selfless love. There was no need for God to create our planet or the creatures that inhabit it; it was an act of selfless love. There was also no need for God to send his only Son to save us. That too was an act of selfless love.

As we draw closer to God and the mystery of the Trinity, we learn about God's love. God has lavished us with love in the persons of the Son and the Spirit, who in turn nurture in us the desire to do the same. When we open ourselves to be filled with an awareness of the divine life within us, we participate in the endless spiral of love that leads to eternal life. Whenever we share selfless love in the family, we are sharing in the life of the Trinity.                    

 

 

Making the Connection 

The mystery of the Trinity is the central mystery of the Christian faith. God made it known to us by revealing himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. As the mystery of God in himself it is the source of all other mysteries of faith.                                     

 

Prayer to the Holy Trinity

 

Glory be to the Father,

 

Who by His almighty power and love created me,

 

making me in the image and likeness of God.

 

Glory be to the Son,

 

Who by His Precious Blood delivered me from hell,

 

and opened for me the gates of heaven.

 

Glory be to the Holy Spirit,

 

Who has sanctified me in the sacrament of Baptism,

 

and continues to sanctify me

 

by the graces I receive daily from His bounty.

 

Glory be to the Three adorable Persons of the Holy Trinity,

 

now and forever.

 

Amen.

Celebrating St Peter's Day

St Peter's Day is celebrated on Saturday June 29th.  We will be celebrating our school feast day on the last day of term 2

- Friday 28th June at 10am in the School Hall.

"The feast day of St. Peter celebrates the life of a disciple of Jesus Christ who is best known for spreading Christianity throughout the world.  Peter took on a leadership role before Christ's death and resurrection.  Roman Catholics consider him to be the first bishop and Pope."  https://www.wincalendar.com/St-Peters

 

On Friday 28th June, we invite all families and extended family and friends in our community to join us in the School Hall at 10am. The students have been preparing different creative ways to acknowledge and celebrate the importance of St Peter's Day.

Grades 5 and 6 students will deliver information about the history of St Peter's School and present an interesting persuasive message using information technology.

Grades 3 and 4 students will creatively present their research on the story of St Peter and use key understandings from persuasive texts to deliver their message.

Grades 1 and 2 students will recognise and highlight 'the family' of St Peter through poetry and persuasion.

This special event will take approximately 30-40 minutes. Please come along to be part of our feast day.
