St. Catherine of Siena 29.04.2020





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 Dialogue, 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:

  • to help your family
  • to help yourself
  • to help others

And in doing this, you are loving God.


Choose something NEW from the list each day…

  • Make your bed
  • Get dressed independently
  • Help to tidy up; your room, the playroom, lounge or kitchen 
  • Sort out recyclable rubbish. Do you know what goes in the different bins at home? 
  • Help with the washing up! Putting dishes in the dishwasher, or helping to unload it. Or help washing dishes in the sink! 
  • Help with the washing, maybe folding up the towels or pairing the socks! 
  • Set the table ready for breakfast, dinner or tea
  • You could help out in the garden by doing some weeding and watering the plants
  • Help a brother or sister with a task they are struggling with
  • Help with the shopping, maybe putting it away once mum or dad has brought it home
  • Make a note, picture or poster to cheer someone up
  • Do as you are told the FIRST time! 
  • Whatever else you can think of that is kind, caring, helpful, loving, the list is endless! 



**At the end of the week, I would like you to make a poster celebrating your achievements! This could be a collage of photographs or a drawing or painting of your good deeds**
