We are blessed to have a rich history of Religious orders who have shaped the St Francis faith community. This history includes, the Sisters of Mercy, Sisters of St Joseph and of course our Patron Saint St Francis. All of these influences bring us to a closer communion with the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit
At St Francis we celebrate our Faith in a number of ways.
Parish, Mass and Sacraments.
We are one community with the St Francis Parish and regularly celebrate weekly Mass together on Wednesday mornings. We also join to celebrate significant feast days and Sunday Mass.
We are supported by our Parish Priest/fire fighter Father Vally as well as Sister Paula and other Parishioners who generously offer their time to help in our classrooms and gardens.
As part of children's Faith Journey we work together with the Parish to encourage all of our children to receive the Sacraments of initiation.
Each Monday we begin our Week with Prayer Assembly. This is a chance to reflect on Sunday's Gospel, share our school Value for the week and pray together in a number of ways.
Each day children begin their day with Morning Prayer. This is a sacred time when children use song, scripture and a variety of Prayers to encounter Christ.
School and Gospel Values
Putting our Values in to action means doing as Jesus would have us do. Our Values are
Love, Respect, Faith and Truth
Children learn about the importance of putting these into action each day.
