Primary students inspired to use their gifts for good!
24 Aug 2018
More than 400 Stage Three students from 12 primary schools across the Diocese of Parramatta, including Trinity Catholic Primary, joined a recent celebration for the Year of Youth at Rooty Hill RSL.
Each of the participating Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta schools is part of the Faith in Action initiative, developed in partnership with Catholic Youth Parramatta. Faith in Action Teams (FIAT) are made up of passionate young teachers (2 to 4 per school) who foster the personal and spiritual growth of young people, engaging them in the life and mission of the Catholic faith community.
The event was facilitated by Catholic Youth Parramatta (CYP) and featured Genevieve Bryant, a highly acclaimed young Catholic singer, songwriter and performer who is from Melbourne. She was a headline performer for the Australian Catholic Youth Festivals in Adelaide in 2015 and Sydney in 2017.
Mission Teaching Educator Amanda Bentley said the program for the day saw a combination of music, testimony, discussion and prayer.
“Genevieve did a great job in engaging with the students and talking to them about trusting in God to use their gifts and talents to share God’s love with others,’’ Ms Bentley said.
“She shared her own testimony and encouraged the students to be engaged with their faith, to deepen their relationship with God and to try to live out God’s message.”
Catholic Youth Parramatta also gathered student testimonies to share with Bishop Vincent Long, Bishop of Parramatta, as another element of dialogue within this Year of Youth event.
“The students were given an opportunity to address the following questions given to them by Bishop Vincent: What have you been involved in at your school for the Year of Youth; what is something you would like Bishop Vincent to know is important for young people in our Church; and what is your dream for the future of the Church.”
Teachers praised the joyful impact the day had on the students.

Happy Fathers’ Day - The Trinity Community wishes you all a very Happy Father's Day. We offered this blessing at the Father's Day liturgy on Friday. Loving God, bless our Fathers, Grandfathers and all who are father figures in our lives, that they may be strengthened as Christian models of fatherhood. May their hearts be filled with generosity, kindness and compassion. Grant that we may honour them always with a deep abiding love and a spirit of profound respect. May they go forth knowing that they are valued and appreciated for they are and all they do. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen

A bronze medallist to Australia but a hero to us here at Trinity! Today we had Jayden Lawrence, a Commonwealth Games Bronze Medallist, and Evie’s dad visit us to talk about his bronze medal win in Birmingham and what it is like to be an Australian wrestler. Year 6 students asked Jayden insightful questions and Jayden was so kind to share his medal for all of us to see.
