Thank you to the wonderful Year 1 and 2 students and their teachers for preparing the reflective Family week liturgy. The Liturgy helped us to pray and give thanks for our family and the church family of St Augustine’s.                                                                                                      The link to view the liturgy is

Feast of Pentecost                                                                                   

This great feast fell on Sunday  5th June. The Catholic Tradition of Pentecost signifies 50 days (or seven Sundays) since the Resurrection of Jesus Christ on Easter Sunday. It commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles and other disciples following the Crucifixion, Resurrection, and Ascension of Jesus Christ. It marks the beginning of the church’s mission to the world. The festival of Pentecost is still important to Christians today because it reminds us how Jesus’ promise that God would send the Holy Spirit was fulfilled. Pentecost is the birthday of the Church because from that point on the apostles carried the message of Christ to the whole world. St. Augustine said that “The Holy Spirit was the soul of the Church. Just as the soul gives life to the body, so also the Spirit gives life to the Church.

                                                                                                   Come, Holy Spirit,                                                                                                                                                  

fill the hearts of your faithful

and kindle in them the fire of your love.
