Congratulations to the children who were presented for Confirmation at Sunday's mass.
This Sunday is the feast of the Ascension. After Easter when Jesus rose from the dead and returned to His disciples, He was with them for forty days until he ascended into heaven. Before He went He told them to go and spread the Good News. He told them God had given Him, Jesus, all authority on heaven and earth and Jesus told His disciples to go and baptise and preach in His name. He promised them He would be with them forever.
Staff have recently planned for our Holy Spirit teaching. We have four key ideas we would like children to grow and develop through their time at St Joseph's. These are:
- The Holy Spirit acts in us, and in the Church,
- Images of the Holy Spirit,
- The Trinity - three persons, one God,
- and stories about the Holy Spirit - the Baptism of Jesus and Pentecost.
