Our Catholic Life
We want our family here at St Paul’s to be full of JOY.
As our patron St Paul encourages us to :
“Be joyful in hope,
patient in difficulties
and faithful in prayer”
Our DESIRE is that everyone will have a positive experience during their time at St Paul’s
by adhering to these tenets:
Jesus – Follow his example
Others – put others before yourself
Yourself – be your best self.
This is the cornerstone of our Catholic Life and Mission, a school with Christ at our centre, supported by our Class and House Saints.
In preparation for the 2025 Jubilee Year 'Pilgrims of Hope', 2024 has been designated a Year of Prayer by Pope Francis. It starts this Advent. There is a particular focus on the Our Father, and this presents us with a great opportunity to go back to the basics of prayer on earth as it is in Heaven.
