The Most Holy Trinity
The Easter season – the principal festival of the Church’s year – has ended. The celebrations of the Sundays immediately following are like an afterglow. Today the liturgy invites us to renew our faith in the Trinity of Persons made know to us in what God has done for the world in Jesus Christ.

Pray to the Holy Trinity
Glory be to the Father,
Who by His almighty power and love created me,
making me in the image and likeness of God.
Glory be to the Son,
Who by His Precious Blood delivered me from hell,
and opened for me the gates of heaven.
Glory be to the Holy Spirit,
Who has sanctified me in the sacrament of Baptism,
and continues to sanctify me
by the graces I receive daily from His bounty.
Glory be to the Three adorable Persons of the Holy Trinity,
now and forever.

Plan for Refugee Day
This Thursday 20th June is World Refugee Day. It provides us with a great impetus to begin or to continue raising our students’ awareness of how different people’s experiences are around the world. Teaching kids about refugees build upon qualities like compassion, kindness and understanding. Three things we all know the world can do with a little more of! Here are some wonderful World Refugee Day activities and ideas for your classroom.
Please pray: —that they may be welcomed and find peace in Australia —that they may find hope and restoration from the despair and persecution from which they have fled —that Christians can celebrate unity in Christ while celebrating our diﬀerences in cultures and nationalities —that unaccompanied refugee children may be protected from all harm and reunited with loving families

World Refugee Day
Pray for Refugees
Lord God, no one is a stranger to you and no one is ever far from your loving care. In your kindness, watch over refugees and victims of war, those separated from their loved ones, young people who are lost, and those who have left home or who have run away from home. Bring them back safely to the place where they long to be and help us always to show your kindness to strangers and to all in need Grant this through Christ our Lord.
A day to honour the courage, the struggles, and the contributions of refugees. Write prayers of intercession for refugees. Listen to Refugee Kids tell their stories.

Prayer of Gratitude
Revisit the song/dance, Grateful: A love song for the world and join in with the dance moves. In prayer journal or on iPhone, take five minutes to list things you are grateful for e.g. things you have learned, the fresh air you have breathed etc. If you run out of “gratitudes” before the time is up, breathe and relax. Finish your list with a Prayer of Thanksgiving. Choose one of your gratitudes to write on a coloured leaf and hang on the Gratitude Prayer Tree.
