Seachtain na Scoileanna Caitliceacha 2012
Catholic Schools Week 29Jan – Feb 4
‘Catholic Schools: Christ’s living body active in our world.’
Bord Bainistíochta na Scoileanna
This week we pay tribute to the work of our Catholic Schools in promoting the educational, personal, moral, physical and spiritual development of our young people. At the launch of Catholic Schools Week 2012 in Dundalk last Thursday, Sean Cardinal Brady paid tribute to the 26,600 Board of Management members who manage Catholic Primary Schools in the Republic of Ireland.
He said, “They are members of the local community, they are volunteers. They offer their wisdom and life experience out of loyalty to the local community and out of their keen appreciation of the importance of a good school, for the sake of the pupils and of the community. […] These boards are exemplary models of subsidiarity at work in our parishes – they are expressions of local participative democracy in our educational system of which we should all be proud.”
The 1st of December 2011 saw the outgoing Boards of Management complete their term and new Boards of Management begin their 4-year term managing our 6 parish primary schools. We thank the outgoing board members for their hard work and wish the incoming Boards every blessing in their work:
We ask God to bless the work of this Bord of Management, these men and women who carry this task on behalf of our community. May the work they do be characterised by inclusiveness and compassion. May their work facilitate the growth and development of the children who are the future of our community. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
We also ask the Lord’s blessing on the work of teachers and the other staff members in our schools.
Children’s Machnamh on Grandparents
‘When they read to us, they don’t skip. They don’t mind if we ask for the same story over again.’
‘Everybody should try to have a grandmother, especially if you don’t have television because they are the only grownups who like to spend time with us.’
‘They know we should have snack time before bed time, and they say prayers with us and kiss us even when we’ve acted bad.’
‘My grandmother lives at the airport and when we want her, we just go get her. Then when we’re done having her visit, we take her back to the airport.’
‘Grandpa is the smartest man on earth! He teaches me good things, but I don’t get to see him enough to get as smart as him!’ (Catholic Schools Week Resources)
Lá ‘le Bríde 1ú Feabhra
A Naomh Bríd a Mhuire na nGael,
scar orainn do bhrat.
A Naomh Bríd a chroí na féile,
stiúir sinn ar an mbóthar ceart.
A Naomh Bríd gheanúil ghrástúil,
ar ár namhaid cosain sinn.
A Naomh Bríd a bhean rialta álainn,
ar uair ár mbáis glaoigh orainn.

Candlemas Day 2nd February
(Feast of the Presentation)
On this day we celebrate the Presentation of the Child Jesus in the Temple. Obedient to the Law of Moses, Mary & Joseph bring the child Jesus to the temple in Jerusalem to be consecrated to the Lord. Whilst there, the devout and just man Simeon recognises Jesus as the Messiah. He had received the promise of the Lord that he would not die without seeing the Lord’s anointed one. His prophesy on seeing Christ is called the Nunc Dimittis and is part of the official Night Prayer of the Church prayed by priests, religious and many lay people:
At last, all-powerful Master, you give leave to your servant * to go in peace, according to your promise.
For my eyes have seen your salvation *
which you have prepared for all nations,
the light to enlighten the Gentiles *
and give glory to Israel, your people. – Luke 2:29-32
Candles are blessed on this day in honour of Christ, the light of all nations.
Blessing of Throats – St Blaise 3rd February
St Blaise, medical doctor and Bishop of Sebaste in modern-day Turkey was martyred in 316AD. According to the stories of his life, he miraculously cured a young boy who was choking on a fishbone. On this day, at Mass throats are blessed with crossed candles in his memory.
