Naming of Terms

Just as a calendar has seasons, months, weeks and days that include key feasts, holidays and celebrations, so too does the Church’s Liturgical Calendar. However, the purpose of the Catholic Liturgical Calendar is not simply to mark a passage of time, but to celebrate the holy mysteries of Jesus Christ.

 

To further educate our community in Catholic belief and tradition. We have named each of our school terms focusing on either a central feast or season of our Liturgical calendar. This has certainly brought alive the faith and mission of our College.

Term 1 is named our Lenten Term, where we ‘Prepare the Way’ leading up to Easter. Term 2 is referred to as our ‘Pentecost Term’, where we are invited to be open to receiving the Holy Spirit in our lives. Term 3 is our Assumption Term; to acknowledge Mary the Mother of our church but also affirm the role of women within our Catholic tradition. And finally, Term 4 is our Advent Term where we are encouraged to wait in joyful hope for the coming of our Saviour Jesus Christ.

Each term has its own unique and colourful pattern of celebrations distinctive colours, music, readings, prayers, rituals, social justice activities and links to our Religious Education program. However, it doesn’t stop there as we continue each year to find new and exciting ways to empower our College community in a manner that deepens our understanding of what it means to be truly Catholic.
