Our school provides opportunities for students, staff and parents to know and celebrate our Catholic faith. This is done through the religious life of our school. Members of our community experience a rich liturgical and prayer life, celebration of the Sacraments, faith formation, social outreach activities, and opportunities to share faith with each other and with youth from other schools in the Archdiocese.
As a school community at Holy Family Catholic Primary School Menai, we celebrate our faith through class masses, liturgies, celebrations within the Church year including Lent, Holy Week, Easter, Advent and Christmas and commemorations of ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day.
God our Father,
You have given us a model of life in the Holy Family.
Help us to make our school family a place of faith, hope and love.
Give us wisdom so that we may learn,
faith to believe in you and unity so that we may love one another.
We pray for our parents, teachers, priests and for each other.
Help us to see Jesus in all that we do.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph pray for us.
Saint Mary of the Cross pray for us.
Throughout our school in every room as together we learn and play, Spirit of Friendship flow through me and live in me each day.
And we will grow together in Faith, we will stand in Unity, with the wisdom of the Spirit at Holy Family. (repeat)
I believe in the power of one, a tomorrow of dreams come true. Spirit of Hope, flow through me God’s light to guide me through.
Under our flag – a cross of stars we stand together as one. Spirit of Peace, flow through me through the land of the Southern Sun.
We will know which path to travel to build a world we know can be, with the courage of the Spirit at Holy Family.
We will grow together in Faith, we will stand in Unity, with the wisdom of the Spirit at Holy Family. (repeat)
