3.Special Character Week 10 Term 2 2021

Special Character Focus

School Family Mass: 

Thank you to Ruma Kakapo-Year 4/5 for the presentation of the gospel last week. Today Ruma Kiwi-Year 4 was presenting the gospel at Mass. Next Term Week 1 gospel presentation will be Ruma Pukeko- Year 1/2. Thank you to the teachers for preparing our children every week for presenting the gospel at Mass. Thank you to all our school families and parishioners for your prayers and support to our school and our children. May God continue to bless you and may you enjoy the school holidays with your family. We are looking forward to seeing you all in Term 3. You are welcome to join us in celebrating Mass.

Last week in our faith facts we learnt about the First Reading and Responsorial Psalm which are part of the Liturgy of the Word. Next, we hear the Second Reading and this is usually an epistle, that is, a letter from the New Testament. This leads to the climax of the Liturgy of the Word: the proclamation of the Gospel. The homily that follows connects the messages from the readings we have just listened to in our lives. The homily, prepared by the priest, both comfort us and challenge us to live out the messages from the readings we have listened to. 

Faith Facts Term 2 2021

Week 10 -5th – 9th July (Green).

Wednesday 7 July is the Feast Day of Blessed Peter To Rot. He was a Catechist (a Teacher of the Catholic Faith) in Papua New Guinea in the 1940's during World War II. He was arrested and murdered because he refused to stop teaching villagers about Jesus and leading them in prayer. This makes him a Martyr (a person who gives up their life for the faith).

Dear Lord
Thank you for this holiday- an extra chance for fun and play.
There's so much I can learn and do, even if I'm not in school.

All the beauty and gifts abound. The world you created is all around.
Today's a chance to go explore, try new things, and discover more.

I'll miss my teacher and my friends just as happen on weekends.
But I know that for today. I'm thankful for this holiday.


Malo 'Aupito

God Bless
