Examination of conscience
Here is an examination of conscience which may help you to look more closely at the serious issues in your life and where you have failed in living out your gospel calling.
What kind of Christian am I in:-

A) My religious practice:
Do I give time to God in prayer?I pray regularly?I join my parish community for Sunday Mass?

B) My home life:
What am I like to live with? Do I make my home happy?I honour my marriage vows or my duties towards my parents or children, those whom I love?I selfish or moody?I cause serious problems in my home through abusing alcohol or drugs, being violent or bullying, being lazy or selfish?

C) My relationship with others:
Am I tolerant of others? Do I treat others with respect?I bitter towards anyone? Do I hold a grudge against anyone?I forgive those who hurt me?I look down on any group or individual because of class, race, nationality, politics, sex or religion?

D) My practice of justice:
Am I too fond of material things?I respect the needs, rights and property of others?I honest in my work and business relationships?I pay my debts and return borrowed goods?I cheat, steal, or make false claims?I respect the environment and all God's creation?

Remember that God isn't interested in how good a memory you have, or how many failings you discover in yourself. All God asks is that you come before him genuinely sorry for those times when you have failed him and failed the community.

Well done to our contractors 'Townmore Construction'

Great excitement for the pupils!

We have also altered the inside of the former school,
