ST CATHERINE OF SIENA FEAST DAY – 29th April
St. Catherine is the patron saint of our school. She was born during the outbreak of the plague in Siena, Italy on March 25, 1347. St. Catherine devoted her life to improving the Catholic church, helping the ill, poor, and spiritually underprivileged. One of the many things that she did was to write a book called , which taught that if you love your neighbours it is loving God.
COVID-19, or Coronavirus, has been compared to the plague by a lot of people. So we might say that we are like St. Catherine, as we are living in a pandemic. This week is St. Catherine’s feast day, April 29th. One of your challenges is to be like St. Catherine.
Our school mission statement is:
“Be who God meant you to be and together we can achieve!”
Your task this week is to learn how to help:
And in doing this, you are loving God.
Choose something NEW from the list each day…
