God has created me
to do Him some definite service.
He has committed some work to me which
He has not committed to another.
I have my mission…
He has not created me for nothing.
I shall do good.
I shall do His work.
(St. John Henry Newman)

In Religion, we will be looking at Remembrance and focusing on the life of Noel Chavasse. We will be examining his life in the light of Scripture-
Whoever shares with others should do it
generously. Whoever has authority should work
hard. Whoever shows kindness to others should
do it cheerfully. Love must be completely
sincere. Hate what is evil, hold on to what is
good. Love one another warmly, as Christian
brothers, and be eager to show respect to one
another. Work hard. Do not be lazy. Serve the
Lord with a heart full of devotion. Let your hope
keep you joyful. Be patient in all your troubles.
Pray at all times. Romans 12:8-11
We will also be preparing for the season of Advent, with a special focus on the calling of Mary to be the Mother of God's son.
