Learning to live out our calling with compassion and love.

Wednesday Word

They say that ‘the best things in life are free’ and The Wednesday Word is a gift to families because of their connection with a Catholic school. Wednesday Word Family Time presents an opportunity for even the busiest of parents to enrich relationships with their children through spending a very special 5 minutes together each week. Every Wednesday a ‘word’, inspired by the coming Sunday’s Gospel, will be suggested for families to talk about in the home. It is structured around the Sunday Gospel because evidence shows that Gospel values really do help family relationships to thrive. The leaflets are designed in a family friendly fashion to ensure that all family members feel included. It aims to be informative, enjoyable, and to help families maintain a special closeness throughout the school years.
