Vision

Vision for the Catholic Life of the School

 

St Mary’s Catholic School is part of the mission of the Catholic Church, which places the educational process in this setting. This means that the ‘Catholic life of the school’ is not an ‘add-on’ or ‘optional extra’ but is fundamental to our identity as a Catholic school. Within this framework, the Catholic life seeks to embrace and contribute to the Mission of the Church, to proclaim the Gospel of Christ and bring each person closer to our loving Father, through the power of the Holy Spirit.

The aims of those involved in facilitating the spiritual life of the school are to enable all members of our community to:

1. Experience God the Father as Creator and to recognise the God-given dignity of all people as ‘made in the image and likeness of God’ (Genesis 1:26)

2. Encounter God the Son, both in Word and Sacrament, and to recognise opportunities to follow and imitate Christ (Mark 8:34), and to contribute towards the ‘Common Good’.

3. Be open to God the Holy Spirit, embracing the Fruits of the Spirit, as they help us to love and serve others (Galatians 5:22-23)
