On Saturday, we will celebrate the feast of the Presentation of the Lord. This commemorates when Mary and Joseph presented Jesus to God at the temple and made an offering for him. It reminds us that Mary and Joseph looked out for Jesus and took care of him, just as many people look after and take care of us too. Think this week about who takes care of you and who you take care of. What does it mean to be cared for and what difference can it make to your life?

During our week of care it is important to think beyond our own school community and to think about communities around the world who need more care.

Watch this video from an Australian Broadcasting Service that explains some of what has been happening in Yemen.


Bishop Patrick has asked us to join with international development faith agencies CAFOD, Christian Aid, Tearfund, World Vision and Islamic Relief by praying this prayer for the people of Yemen.

Giver of Life, 
Who hears the cries from Yemen;
of mothers choosing between medicine or food,
of parents grieving children lost to starvation,
of those who have given up everything in hunger.
Hear our cries for hope, for change, for peace
In your mercy,
Break political deadlocks,
Soften hardened hearts,
Change closed minds,
Open unhearing ears.
Let people come before power
Let life be holy again
Let your justice and peace 
Shape the nation of Yemen
And the lives of all people
Continue with your mission this week to be more caring and to stand against violence and injustice.
We end by making the Sign of the Cross.
