Through the month of November there are certain important themes that I wish to emphasize.
Firstly, our focus for the month is PRAYER and PERSEVERENCE. If our aim this year is the “Live the Joy of the Gospel” then to do this well we must ask ourselves the question “What would Jesus do?, then it is important to give Jesus the opportunity to answer that question for us, especially in tougher times. To do this, we need to pray. Prayer shouldn’t only be for times of tragedy or extreme suffering. Prayer should be an important part of our everyday lives as we live the joy of the Gospel.
Secondly, what a response we had for our Giving Tree campaign! Thank you all for your generosity. I am very proud of our students and especially grateful to those who organized this act of service.
Finally, in November it is time for remembrance. Recent events in our country and indeed across the world have highlighted the need for prayers for peace and prayers of gratitude for those who sacrifice so much for the safety of others. On November 11th take time to stop and remember and say a prayer.
Have a great month everyone.
