Love is the Mark of Christians
There are many things that mark us as Christians and as Catholics: the sign of the cross, the Holy Mass and sacraments, our prayers and songs, our liturgical celebrations, our churches and places of worship – all inspired by our Scriptures and traditions. But at the heart of all this and that which holds all things together is the commandment of love – love of God and neighbor, “as Jesus loved us”.
The distinguishing mark of Jesus’ disciples is their practice of love (Greek – agape). Jesus gave this as new commandment and badge at the Last Supper: “I give you a new commandment: love one another; just as I have loved you… by this love you have for one another, everyone will know that you are my disciples” (John 13:34-35).

A reminder that our School Photo Day is on Wednesday 24th May. All students should have already received a student online ordering slip with their unique ordering code. Please note that if you would like to have family photos taken, you will need to pick up a Family Photo Envelope from the front office prior to photo day. Family photos will be taken before school from 8:20am onwards. Parents will need to accompany their children to school on the day and stay with them until their photo is taken. Please ensure that your family envelope with enclosed payment is handed to the photographers on the day.
