In Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus shares with the disciples, The Beatitudes. Beatitude means blessing. They show us that God’s values are not the same as the world’s values. In society, it is the winners, the wealthy, powerful, strong, beautiful, and popular who are respected the most. Jesus says that God greatly blesses the poor, lonely, and hurting, especially if they suffer because they love him.
Did you know that our faction names were changed in 2012 to represent the orders associated to our school?
The faction ‘St Joseph’ is named after the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart. The Sisters opened the school in 1927 and had fifty enrolments.
The students at St Mary’s School are encouraged to live by the values of courage, resourcefulness, humility, reliability and acceptance like the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart did.
