Return from half-term holidays.
After seven weeks of class, the children of Saint Benedict’s have just enjoyed a well-deserved holiday. Now, we return with new energy, ready to confront the challenge of exams! We ask the children to consider both success and struggles with a supernatural outlook. Our achievements are a motive for thanksgiving, while difficulties can be a source of humility and a greater recognition of our need for God’s grace.
In the parable of the talents, God asks for a return based on the talents entrusted to each person, whether that be five talents, two, or just one. Our goal at St Benedict’s is precisely that, to help each child develop the talents that he has received from his Creator.
Saint Benedict, pray for us!
