Catholic Parish and School

16 Mar

cross

In the catholic education sector we recognize that our schools can support some of our parents by offering more opportunities for communal prayer and providing information to help them work on deepening their faith with their children; however, we also recognize the diversity of our communities and we welcome children and families from all religions of the world in our schools. All our celebrations, liturgies and para-liturgies are inclusive and are designed to allow children to develop their own spiritual identity whether as Catholics, Christians of other denominations or of other faiths. The biculturalism of our nation demands it. As a New Zealanders I expect it. Catholic schools promote personal and communal prayer and reflection and as a community of faith we seek to empower each individual to understand, live and bear witness to his/her faith whilst maintaining a respectful awareness of others’ beliefs. We are on a journey of faith together as a community. We often talk about Student Learning Outcomes in educational circles but what is our desired “outcome” for our children, or for that matter ourselves? For most of us that is an eschatological dimension – something beyond our current reality. In establishing our personal relationships with God we can subsequently grow as a community of faith and journey together towards passing the ultimate test and securing everlasting life.
