Special Dates

John is about 6 months older than Jesus, and he is the one who baptizes Jesus. John's father is Zacharias and his mother is Elizabeth. They were both faithful to God. Your children will tell you the story about how John came to be. If they have forgotten it is in the Bible Luke 1:5-2539-80 or find it here

June 28th is the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
In 1899, Pope Leo XIII consecrated the entire world to the devotion of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  The devotion to the Sacred Heart is one of the most widely practiced and well-known Roman Catholicdevotions, taking Jesus Christ's physical heart as the representation of his divine love for humanity.  

9th Commandment “You shall not covet your neighbour’s wife. Coveting is the uncontrolled desire that motivates people to become possessive of someone or something.  This commandment warns us about what can happen inside our hearts, and invites us to focus our desires in good and healthy ways, and to respect people by never treating them as objects to use as we please.  This commandments asks us to respect other friendships and relationships that already exist.  It can be applied to all people and every kind of relationship and friendship. It can become even more important when we think about marriage.   

Please let us join together with our Catholic Schools around New Zealand and the Caritas to raise money and support Doputz Primary School in Bouganville (Papua New Guinea) to help reopens their school by providing new water tanks and toilets. Also repairing classrooms. Give a little can make a difference. Thank you.

Malo 'Aupito
God Bless
