St Vincent de Paul
St Vincent de Paul was committed to caring for the poor in society and those who were in need. He made it his mission to help them.
Today, his mission is carried on by the SVP society and the Mini Vinnies. We will work together to think about the incredible work of our Class Saint and we will use his ideas to inspire our own so that we too can help those near to us and those who are in different parts of the world.
We will look at the Stories of the Road to Emmaus and Breakfast at the Shore.
We will learn how through these events, the Apostles of Jesus became aware of his presence amongst them.
We will also look at how the Church celebrates the presence of the Risen Christ at the Eucharist and
identify this at Mass.
We will look at how the events of Pentecost changed the life of the Apostles and how we celebrate
the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives today.
We will continue in our preparations for The Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.
The children have prepared so reverently so far and have thought carefully about what the
sacraments mean to them.
Sid, Peggy and Amy adore the two gerbils, Bubble and Squeak, but their mother detests them.
A major family battle results, and it's clear life is never going to be quite the same again.
But after a near fatal encounter between Bubble and Ginger the cat, Mrs Sparrow begins to see
that life with 2 gerbils might not be so bad after all.
