St Joseph's Catholic Primary School

Love, learn and live in Christ!

This week is the second of the season of ADVENT. We now light the first two purple candles on our Advent Wreath. The first purple candle represents HOPE. The second represents LOVE. What do you do to show your family and friends that you love them?

TRUSTHARMONYFUNLOVEFRIENDSHIP

We are now in the second week of Advent. We still light the first purple candle - the candle representing HOPE but now also light the second purple candle - the candle representing LOVE.

How do you show your LOVE for your family, your friends, the world and yourself?  Why not take some family time to reflect on this and pray together?

WHOLE SCHOOL WORSHIP FOCUS

Over the next few weeks we will be focusing on the Virtue of FAITH. We have listened to the story of the woman who touched Jesus' cloak in the belief she would be cured and the Roman soldier who asked Jesus to say the word and heal his servant. We are reflecting on the importance of Faith and how it affects our lives.

We will continue to carry out acts of charity when we can, trying to be selfless not selfish.
