Our Faith

Letter To Parents 2022 Autumn 2022

 

 

 

 

 

IMPORTANT DATES THIS TERM

 

 

 All Saints

(1 November)

We celebrate the lives of special and ordinary people who have responded to God’s invitation to love.

 

The commemoration of all the faithful departed (All Souls)

(2 November)

Today and throughout the rest of November we pray for those who have died.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.

May they rest in peace. Amen.

 

Our lord jesus Christ, universal King

(20 November)

 

ADVENT

(Begins 27 November)

Advent means ‘coming’. We think of the coming of Jesus when he was born but we also think of his promise that he would come again at the end of time. It is a time of waiting and preparing. It is only in the last week of Advent that we focus upon the events to be celebrated at Christmas.

 

The Immaculate Conception of the blessed virgin mary

(8 December)

This feast marks the first stage of the existence of Mary, the mother of Jesus.

She was ‘full of grace’ from the very beginning and

co-operated with God throughout her life.

 

Christmas Day, The nativity of the lord

(25 December)

On this day we begin our celebration of the birth of Christ.

 

The holy family of jesus, mary and joseph

(30 December)

 

At St Michael & St John's, we strive to ensure that everyone who comes through our door is made to feel welcome. 

Our staff work hard to ensure that our faith is at the heart of everything we do and reflects our ethos.

 

Following the example of Jesus, together we learn, love and respect one another to be the best we can be. 

 At SSMJ we offer our children an exciting and faith filled RE curriculum that is central to every aspect of school life. Through the outstanding provision we make we ensure that children leave our school religiously literate and engaged in the world and people around them, filled with knowledge, understanding and skills so that they can reflect spiritually, think ethically and theologically, and who are aware of the demands of religious commitment in everyday life.

 

The staff team are dedicated to every stage of your child’s development in the faith and through prayer life, vocational awareness, Religious Education lessons, charitable works, Sacramental preparation, we work with you, the parent, and the Parish to make sure children growing in God’s love are prepared to live life to the fullest as Catholics who have an astute understanding of their personal and social responsibility and British Values as faith filled and giving citizens of tomorrow.

 

Lent 2022

 

We are delighted to be taking part in our annual appeal supporting Caritas during Lent, raising money for children, mums and dads across the Diocese of Salford who need help. Not everyone has the things they need to make a happy home, but Caritas, through the St Joseph’s Penny Appeal, reaches out to those vulnerable children and families in our communities. They offer support in lots of different ways – from food parcels to counselling sessions, from Christmas presents to giving young mums and their babies somewhere safe to live; Caritas means something different to everyone we help.

This year we are asking parent/carers to make a donation through a special JustGiving page.
