The week beginning 24th January, we enter Catholic Schools Week for the year 2021. As we live through an unprecedented time of challenge and uncertainty, our faith and our resilience can be tested. We can ask questions like ‘Will things ever be the same again?’, ‘When can we get back to normality?’, ‘Where is God in all of this?’ In response to this, we reflect upon how Catholic schools are communities of faith and resilience. In Catholic schools, we are called to support each other and to have faith in the promise of the Good News. Catholic schools are inspired by the belief that God has created each one of us with a capacity to give love and receive love. This love is bound in faith and is more resilient than any virus.
This week St Louis GS will celebrate what it is to be part of such a Catholic ethos, considering how our school lives continuously as a community of faith, learning, love, resilience, and hope. Each day, Key Stage Three students will have the opportunity to engage in online tasks centred around these main themes. Key Stage Four and Five students will be given the opportunity to participate in a writing and/or art competition, illustrating how these themes are lived in our St Louis community.
Catholic Schools Week in St Louis will draw to a close on Friday with a very special online Mass at 9am, led by our school Chaplain, Fr Conor. Details of this will follow.
