Principal's Message

Dear Parents, Boys and Girls,

I would like to take the time during Catholic School’s Week to reflect on the task of raising our children in a society that is pushing and pulling in all directions. As a Catholic Community we are called to do God’s work in a world that challenges us to be true followers of Jesus. I have spoken to the community about the “Listen, Share & Act” aspect of our lives here at St Margaret Marys. That is Listen to the Gospel, Share the Good News and put this into Action. We are very good at Listening and Sharing but we are challenged to be a community of Action, especially during this season of Lent.

With our new Pope Francis being a man of Action we see an excellent example of a follower of Christ who is a witness to the Gospel. I have recently reread Bishop Anthony’s “Witness to Christ in The World.” (WYD Catechesis for Friday 19th August 2011). In his message Bishop Anthony challenges us with 10 Commandments for new evangelisers. They are:

  1. Become what you are
  2. Get inspiration from the best places
  3. Be open to God’s call
  4. Let God lead you down new paths
  5. Dare to be creative
  6. Make ordinary life your first field of evangelisation
  7. Take a genuine interest in people
  8. Give personal testimony
  9. Focus on the proclamation of salvation
  10. Seek the support of wise friends

These ten guidelines provide us with the pathway to becoming evangelisers and as followers of Christ we are challenged not just to Listen, but to Share the Good News with those we meet. In our Catholic School we must reach out to others and bring them to God by our living example and the way we treat others. This is our Action.

At our Catholic School’s Mass on Monday I spoke about the challenge for St Margaret Mary’s in making a positive difference in our community. A question for our community in Catholic Schools’ Week is “What are you doing for others that will bring Christ into their lives?

God Bless

Mr Kevin Mills
