Pride Week 2022

For it was you who formed my inward parts; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made! 

Psalm 139:13-14

Powerful and ever living God; you showed your love for us by giving us your Son Jesus who is the model for love. He wants us to experience incredible, life-changing love, mercy, and compassion not only from him, but from those around us. 

Through our core values – we have a mission to love one another as you have loved us. We respect the unique value, dignity, mission and gifts that God gives each and every person in our school. We recognise that God created all children in his image and that diversity is beauty. Differences are gifts.

Give us the courage to remind others that the call to love and help others in tangible ways runs throughout the Bible. Give us the wisdom to share that the word ‘Catholic’ actually means including a variety, to embrace and to welcome. We are called to embrace, welcome and love all students.

May Jesus’ love for us be our greatest treasure. May his forgiveness inspire us to love those in our lives more deeply. 

Thank you Lord for creating us all in your image. We are indeed fearfully and wonderfully made!
