Parish Religious Education Program

For our Advent Parish Religious Education Program this year, we had 3 weeks of Craft Activities making Christmas cards, bead Angels, Christmas wreaths and decorating candles.
We started each lesson with a retelling of the Christmas Story by Mrs Williams who used figurines and props to enhance the Story of Mary and Joseph's Journey to Bethlehem.
We followed these activity weeks with 2 weeks of preparation for our Nativity Play 'Round The Back''.  The children got involved with great enthusiasm, dressing in costumes, memorizing their lines and movements and practising their singing of Christmas Carols.  At the Final week of our PREP class we put on the Nativity play to the parents who stayed and joined in our Christmas windup.



 

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
