OSHC (Outside Hours School Care)

centacare1

Our Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) is part of the Holy Family Catholic Parish, and is located within the Holy Family Primary School Indooroopilly. The service has been operating under Centacare Child Care Services since 2006 and is currently licensed to provide care for 59 children whose ages range from prep-year 6.

Our OSHC program supports working families in the school by providing quality care to children of school age. Our service works closely with the Parish and school to ensure children are happy, safe and have a variety of resources.

We provide a safe, nurturing and caring environment for children to grow and learn and be happy. We believe in fostering children’s independence and diversity, and incorporate their ideas into the program to support them in their journey of discovery and growth. Through planned and unplanned experiences children will practice social skills, enjoy free play indoors and outdoors, develop life skills, relax, and be challenged.

We foster and support diversity, and encourage children to respect and value the uniqueness, spirituality and individuality of each and every person.

Opening Hours

After School Care: Monday – Friday (3-6pm)

22-9-19 – 7 Tips for a Happy Marriage (Part II)

Hi everyone, Continuing last week’s talk on marriage tips from Pope Francis. 5. Ask Jesus to multiply your love: “Give us this day our daily Love”. You can’t forget to pray. The Pope gave the couples the following advice based on the ‘Our Father’ prayer. “The Lord can multiply your love!! He has an infinite reserve! He gives you the love that stands as a foundation of your union and each day he renews and strengthens it. And he makes it even greater when the family grows with children … Ask Jesus to multiply your love. When we pray the ‘Our Father we normally say “Give us this day our daily bread”. When it comes to marriage, we can say: Give us this day, our daily love. This is the prayer for married couples and spouses. Teach us to love one another, to will the good of the other! The more you trust in him, the more your love will be”forever”, able to be renewed and it will conquer any difficulty.” 6. Three important phrases that should be often repeated by married couples and in the family: MAY I? THANK YOU. I’M SORRY… Living together is an art, a patient, beautiful, fascinating journey. It does not end once you have won each other’s love… Rather, it is precisely there where it begins! The journey of every day has a few rules that can be summed up in three phrases … MAY I? THANK YOU. I’M SORRY… MAY I? This a polite request to enter the life of another with respect and care. One should learn how to ask: may I do this? Would you like for us to do this? In short, to ask permission means to know how to enter with courtesy into the lives of others. How do I enter with courtesy into the lives of others? THANK YOU. In your relationship, keep alive the awareness that the other person is a gift from God – and for the gifts of God, we say thank You. Likewise we should say thanks for everything regarding our beloved spouse. Do we know how to say thank you? I’M SORRY. Let us learn to acknowledge our mistakes and to ask for forgiveness. “Forgive me if today I have raised my voice”; “I’m sorry if I passed without greeting you”; “Excuse me if I was late”; “If I spoke too much without listening”; “excuse me if I forgot”; “I’m sorry I was angry and I took it on you”. Apply this phrases with your children and watch your family grow. 7. Forgiveness is the key to happiness. Learn to love your spouse with their defects with the idea to help them grow. The pope gives this warning. Nobody is perfect. So the key to happiness he said is forgiveness. We all know that the perfect family does not exist, nor a perfect husband, wife or mother-in-law. It’s us who do exist, sinners. Jesus knows us well and shares with us this secret: Never let the day end, without apologising. Blessings Fr Nev

By Dr. Peter VardyTHE REFORMATION TODAY: AN ECUMENICAL PERSPECTIVE 

2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Many historians consider the Reformation one of those epoch changing events in the history of the Western world. But what does it mean for people in Australia 500 years later? Was the Reformation just a series of pointless disputes which have little relevance to the church today? Or is the church today the living legacy of the Reformation, and if so, what does this mean for us? Join us as we ask these questions together.
