    'Be Still'  and Catholic Education Week 

    This week I spoke to the staff about the value, and importance of taking the time to 'be still'. In doing so we are able to stand quietly with God and experience the peace that comes from knowing that we are not alone and that we are loved. 

    I encourage you to take the time to listen to this reflection by The Fray, to stop and be still and to know that God is with you. This leads well into our theme for 2016 Catholic Education Week - 'Opening the Doors of Mercy' ....

    Catholic Education Week - August 14-20

    The theme for the week is ‘Catholic Education: Opening the Doors of Mercy.’ This year all Catholic schools throughout Tasmania are stopping to celebrate who they are and how they open their doors to welcome and value all staff, students, families, parish members and volunteers. 

    To begin this Year of Mercy, Pope Francis continued an ancient tradition in the church of opening the Holy Door at St Peter’s Basilica in Rome in a very solemn and sacred ritual. It is believed that those who enter through this Holy Door will receive special graces from God.

    The following You tube clip  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eItw6_23-q8   contains an explanation of the importance of a Holy Door footage of Pope Francis opening the door in St Peters Basilica in Rome.

    In this Year of Mercy, Pope Francis has reminded us to open the doors of our hearts to receive the mercy of God and to show others God’s mercy.
