Francis Jordan Catholic School

Our school is a family orientated, Catholic Parish community-based, centred on the person of Jesus and the teachings of the Catholic Church where children thrive. It is the intention of all involved in the school to provide an environment where the students feel loved, safe, nurtured and valued. It is a place where each student is challenged to excel. Families are encouraged to be as involved in the life of the school as they can be. The school is a more complete community when this occurs. Respect for the dignity of each person underpins all actions and relationships in the school. The school is a learning community, where students are developed into young people who think clearly, act with integrity, generosity and humility, are sensitive to the needs of others, have a desire to serve the community and adopt a global perspective. In the spirit of Fr Francis Jordan we seek to make Jesus and His teachings known to our students and our community. Finally, our school is a place where prayer and liturgical celebrations provide a central focus for a Catholic Christian community.

St Simon Peter Parish Prayer

St Simon Peter Parish Prayer

Heavenly Father,
you have chosen our parish as the place by which you encounter us in our daily lives.
Here your Word is proclaimed,the Eucharist is celebrated,
and your people are united in a family of believers.
We pray for our parish named in honour of St Simon Peter and placed under his patronage.
Through his intercession may every blessing be poured out on all members of our parish.
We pray for our schools, their staff and students, and all their families.
May our parish be filled with holiness and prayer, with faith and love;
May it be a place where worthy and reverent worship is offered to God,
and where we receive grace and power for our mission.
May all who come here find a welcoming home,
comfort in their needs and strength for their journey of faith.
We make this prayer through Christ, Our Lord.
Amen
