Autumn 1- Grateful and Generous
Grateful: We are grateful for the gifts God has given to us, for the gifts of other people and the blessings of each new day. We are thankful for what we have and for the people around us.
Generous: We are generous with our gifts and use them in the service of others. We are generous with our time and give of ourselves to serve others as God wants us to. We are generous with our actions, doing things to help other people and make a difference in the world.
Generous God, Make our hearts like yours, always ready to give. Help us to see opportunities to give our time, so we can achieve amazing things together. Teach us to be grateful for all the good gifts in our lives and to be generous when giving to others. Amen
Congratulations to Ava T and Khoi N awarded our Gospel Virtues Award for showing the virtue of being Grateful and Generous.
Autumn 2- Attentive and Discerning
Attentive: We are attentive when we listen to our calling from God to love and serve one another in all that we do. We are attentive to our experiences and can see where they will take us in our future vocations.
Discerning: We are discerning when we decide to do the right thing in the interest of the needs of others because we know the positive impact that will have on their lives.
Lord Jesus, teach me to be generous;
Teach me to serve you as you deserve,
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labour and not to seek reward,
Except that of knowing that I do your will.
