All Saints Day – 2013


We celebrated All Saints day again this year and appeared in an article in the Perth Catholic Newspaper – The Record. They had found an article on our site from last year and wanted to cover a story to show that Catholics are still celebrating this great feast day.

Chesterton Quotes


On the creature called Man
“It is the simple truth that man does differ from the brutes in kind and not in degree; and proof of it is here; that it sounds like a truism to say that the most primitive man drew a picture of a monkey, and that it sounds like a joke to say that the most intelligent monkey drew a picture of a man.Something of a division and disproportion has appeared; and it is unique. Art is the signature of man.”
G.K.Chesterton – The Everlasting Man

Young Nuns in the news


What is a Sister? A religious sister is a woman who has been consecrated to God through the Church, responding to His invitation of love through vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. Each religious sister belongs to a particular religious community, serving God and the Church and world in a distinct way. A religious sister is truly a bride of Jesus Christ the greatest Lover and a spiritual mother of an enormous family–over 6.8 billion worldwide!

Do young women still become sisters? The answer is yes . . . but, why? Simple: they have fallen in love!  A religious sister is a bride and a mother who has uncovered the deepest desire of her heart: to follow Christ in a life-long adventure for the Glory of God and the Salvation of Souls!

Catholic Heritage Curricula – Summer Enrichment Program

Catholic Heritage Curricula invites you to try our Summer Enrichment Program! We offer materials that can be used for remedial reading, math, and spelling; or for wholesome summer activities and enrichment to keep skills up and children excited at the wonder of discovery over the long summer break from school.

Phonics, reading, spelling, and math workbooks may be used for catch-up tutoring in the child’s comforting, supportive home environment. (For remedial work, select materials that are suited to the ability of the child.)

As the student progresses through the work, point out to him the areas that he/she has mastered, praising him/her for his achievement. When the student’s weak areas begin to show, slow down a bit to make sure he/she understands the new concept. Then remind him that, just as he mastered previous concepts, he will soon master this one. Praise, praise, praise.

Students who are ahead of their grade level and thrive on challenges might use materials above their grade level, also suited to their abilities.

Or perhaps your family would like to create a summer of memories, exploring the wonders of God’s creation through simple astronomy; bird study; or teaching your children how to whittle; or to cook over an open fire. See Tin Cups and Tinder, The Young Man’s Handybook, or Pilgrims of the Holy Family. Would your daughter like to learn simple sewing and cooking skills with Mom or Grandma this summer? Create memories with Sewing with Saint Anne or Tea and Cake with the Saints.

Whether your child needs tutoring, or engaging enrichment activities, Catholic Heritage Curricula’s Summer Enrichment Program gives your family the tools to fill summer days with wholesome, character-building activities.

Praying God’s blessing and protection on your family this summer,

Theresa Johnson

Apollo Bay Holiday


On the 14th of November we went to Apollo Bay. Here are some of the things we did.

We took the Sorrento ferry to Queenscliff  which we went on to get across the bay.

Then it was down to the beach. We also took a trip to the Otway Fly Treetop walk.

It is the longest and highest walk of its kind in the world. It is able to withstand 280km/h winds and is 30m above the forest floor
