Special Character

  

St. Mary's is a full Yr 1 - 8 Primary School in the Catholic Parish of Hastings.  The Parish Priest is Fr Vince Onesi, assisted by Fr Nathanial Brazil.
At our School the traditions and practices of the Catholic Church are learnt and experienced.  The Gospel Values of Jesus Christ, including love, compassion and forgiveness, contribute to a school community who care about the family, about New Zealand society and about the world.  Mary, the Mother of God, is our Patron Saint.

 

Religious Education
In the Religious Education Curriculum our students learn about God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, The Church, the Sacraments and the Communion of Saints.

 

Prayer is an integral part of daily school life and our students attend Mass regularly in the Madonna Maria Chapel on our school site.
Children are prepared for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion in partnership with the Parish.
Some of the major Liturgical Celebrations include :

  • Ash Wednesday
    Lent
    Easter Liturgy
    The Feast of the Assumption

    Christmas
    Weekly masses

 As witnesses to Jesus Christ we live by the Gospel Values of :

  •  RESPECT -  for


God
Ourselves
Other people
Our environment

 

  • RESPONSIBILITY - for

    Our friendship with God
    The things we do
    The words we speak
    What we think

 

  • RECONCILIATION - with

    God
    Our friends
    Our classmates
    Our teachers
    Our families

 

THIS IS ST. MARY'S
