A Weekly Gift to you and your family from your Catholic School
Dear Parents and Carers,
In this Sunday’s Gospel, we hear about Jesus starting to
gather together the first Christian community.
Christian communities ( just like families) are never
perfect – even Jesus’ closest disciples weren’t always
the ideal set of people. However, everyone works better
with others in community.
Our schools and parish communities were founded to be
places of love, friendship, security and inclusiveness.
Wednesday 20th January 2021
People in the past answered Jesus’ call to form our
Catholic school communities which now welcome
and support us and our children. Now it’s our turn to
continue the work, to build on and develop the warm
and loving community of our school – together.
Enjoy a very special time together this evening, hearing
your child’s thoughts about this Sunday’s Gospel and
this Wednesday’s word, which is COMMUNITY.

THE GOSPEL IN CHURCH
Sunday 24th January 2021
After John had been arrested,
Jesus went into Galilee. There he
proclaimed the Good News from
God. “The time has come,” he
said, “and the kingdom of God
is close at hand. Repent, and
believe the Good News.” As he
was walking along by the Sea of Galilee he saw
Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net in
the lake - for they were fishermen. And Jesus
said to them, “Follow me and I will make you into
fishers of men.” And at once they left their nets
and followed him. Going on a little further, he
saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John;
they too were in their boat, mending their nets.
He called them at once and, leaving their father
Zebedee in the boat with the men he employed,
they went after him.
