Family and Community

 

Catholics believe that every human life is sacred and should be respected from conception until natural death. We also believe that human life is inherently social, and that how we relate to each other in society impacts human dignity and our ability to grow in community. Marriage and family are foundational communities of society.

In the Acts of the Apostles, St. Paul describes what community looks like:

'Disciples of Christ shared their food and possessions to make sure the neediest among them were taken care of.' (Acts 2:42–47).

These members of the early Church model a society in which all members of a community care for one another.

Y2 were so lucky to welcome one of our parents today who taught us all about culture in Tanzania! It was so interesting and we are loving multicultural week in school! @BCPP__ @SchsofSanctuary

What a beautiful May Procession! We thank Father Stefan for a lovely Mass, the families who donated flowers for class altars & the girls & boys who dressed in their Communion clothes for the occasion. What a fabulous way to start the day! 🌸🙏🌺

A beautiful Family Mass, led by the staff & children in Y2 this morning! There were absolutely fab with their readings; Fr said they didn’t need the microphone 🎤 😂 Lots of wonderful comments from all the parishioners who joined us for Holy Mass! #faith filled community! ❤️🙏❤️

Y6 sent Christmas cards to our local fire station to thank them for working over Christmas!

Last week, Y1 & Y2 spread some joy for our Advent action by singing some of our Nativity songs for the adults on the playground! We hope it spread some cheer to our family & community 💕

As part of their Advent preparation, Y6 have created Christmas cards for lonely people in the Parish and for people working on Christmas Day!

Pre-School have been completing an Action each week of Advent to get ready for the preparation of the Birth of Jesus.

Whole School sponsored Reindeer Run to raise money for Mary Stevens Hospice!

Y6 were so lucky to have Mrs D’Souza come and visit this afternoon to tell us all about the languages she speaks and the culture in Zimbabwe!

Year three have had so much fun learning all about Italy and their language today! We have made pizzas, learnt about the different greetings and culture and we were lucky enough to have Arianna’s family speak to us about their own Italian culture! 🇮🇹 🍕 

Every week our Pre-School prayer bag is sent home with a different child. This is a lovey opportunity for the children to set up their own prayer area and share prayers and Bible stories with their family 🙏

Year 3 are writing their own stories based on dilemmas that happen in our own families and communities

Year 1 invited Father Stefan to share the key parts of the mass with them. We are learning how we come together in church as one family in Christ, celebrating mass as God’s family.

Y1 learning all about where their families are from. Family and community in geography!

What a fantastic afternoon we have had! Y2 took a walk into Halesowen as part of our family and community learning in history! So much has changed in our community but some still remains. We even had some of our wonderful moms join us!

Year 3 made a fabulous start on their PowerPoints today based on our school community. They were developing valuable PowerPoint skills 💻

This afternoon we welcomed members of our school community for our EAL coffee afternoon! It was lovely to chat and share tips and experiences ☕️

What Unites our Kingdom? In year 1 we started our new topic by finding out what ‘United’ means. Look at our beautiful hydrangea, a symbol of unity and togetherness.

Learning all about who we are through family and community in geography. ar 3 created some amazing projects for their ‘Does it matter where we come from?’ project day today. They showed so much knowledge about the cities and counties of the UK. We are very proud of you all! 🌍

Caritas in action to help our community 🧡

Today we welcomed children and teachers from our Catholic School community. What a fantastic day celebrating Building the Kingdom with a wonderful group of children. We created art all about the dignity of refugees which is being displayed in our local shopping centre tomorrow! @HolyFamSchCov @SMCPWednesbury @BCPP__ @SrJudithRussi @BrumSchOfSanc 🧡🧡 we also wrote a collaborative letter about our views to James Morris! Finally, it was a pleasure to welcome volunteers and a member for the Halesowen Welcome Group.

Today welcomed our lovely grandparents to school for cake and coffee as part of our family and community CST learning this half term. Our Caritas Ambassadors were great hosts 💕 In the words of Pope Francis ‘grandparents are a treasure in the family’.

Y6 wrote persuasive letters to our local MP about an issue in our community that we care about!

As part of exploring our CST question of ‘Should we always do as we are told?’, Y6 visited Harvington Hall to learn about the Catholic Priests that broke the law by continuing to live out their faith!

Y6 visited St Chads Cathedral to learn all about our Mother Church and it’s influence in our community!

Year three created amazing projects for their project day. They explored the question of ‘Does it matter where we come from?’ by taking a geographical approach. Well done Year Three!

Year 3 are exploring the school website to help them construct their own information texts about our school. 

Year three are using atlases to explore the landscape of the UK. We explored the question of does the landscape affect communities?

Year 3 have been making PowerPoints based on their school community. They have built on their valuable ICT and presenting skills. 💻 

Discipleship in Action!
Pope Francis talks about service and charity: “Love and charity, are service, helping others, serving others. There are people who spend their lives in this way, in the service of others.When you forget yourself and think of others, this is love! 

 

As part of our Catholic Social Teaching, all staff are volunteering at the Halesowen Welcome Group; supporting those less fortunate than ourselves. We are extremely proud to be called by God to serve others, especially at this time of the year, when families are really struggling financially and refugees, are in need of our love and support. 🙏💕🙏

 

One family, one Catholic Community!

 

Thank you to all our children in in Y6, for leading us in Remembrance Mass in church this morning! You are a credit to your parents & great ambassadors for our school. 🙏💙🙏 Look at all the wonderful Remembrance Art, that the children created to dress the Altar this morning- amazingly talented children. 🎨🖌️Well done Mr Hyde & Mrs P, for preparing the children so well. Thank you to all our families who joined us for this special Mass! 💙 It was so wonderful to see you all 💕
