Prayer And Worship

Prayer And Worship

Our day at St Francis begins with the ‘Peace Prayer of St Francis’ as we strive to be a community where relationships are built on peace and compassion.  There are many quiet spaces in our school that invite us to take time in our busy days to contemplate and place ourselves in God’s presence:  Mt La Verna, The Mary Grotto and the Hermitage.  The banks of the Boyne River also become a space of reflection for our classes. With our school nestled on the banks of the Boyne River, minutes from Canoe Point, we are conscious of God’s presence in the environment.  We are committed to our stewardship of the land on which we learn as we foster in our children a sense of wonder and a personal responsibility to care for our world.

Through our celebrations of Mass and other faith-filled experiences students are invited into a closer relationship with Christ.  We gather with our Parish priests, Fr Kevin and Fr Aliki, at St Peter Chanel Church which is located on our school grounds. Hosting classes take special pride as they reverently lead our school and community in worship.  We look forward to our celebrations of the feast days of St Francis and St Clare which are held outdoors at Canoe Point and on our school grounds.
