Wednesday Word

The Wednesday Word is offered to you as a new, special 5 minutes Family Time together.

They say that ‘the best things in life are free’ and The Wednesday Word is a gift to families from St. Gerard’s School because of their connection with our Catholic school.

Wednesday Word Family Time presents an opportunity for even the busiest of parents to enrich relationships with their children through spending a very special 5 minutes together.

The primary school version of The Wednesday Word is a double-sided A4 leaflet which carries the Sunday Gospel into school family homes. Every Wednesday a ‘word’, inspired by the coming Sunday’s Gospel, will be suggested for families to talk about in the home. The Wednesday Word is structured around the Sunday Gospel, because evidence shows that Gospel values really do help family relationships to thrive and St. Gerard’s School ethos is rooted in Gospel values.

The Wednesday Word Family Time leaflet is designed in a family friendly fashion to ensure that all family members feel included. It aims to be informative, enjoyable, and to help families maintain a special closeness throughout the school years. The Wednesday Word spreads the Gospel in a powerful new way – sowing seeds to school parents and their families.

The Wednesday Word mission aims to help all school families draw closer to God, to the Church and to each other.

Through distributing the Wednesday Word we aim to enhance the Home, School and Parish partnership.
