教區天主教教育委員會新設「聖伯多祿獎」




The Diocesan Catholic Education Commission introduces “Saint Peter’s Award”



為鼓勵各所教區直屬學校的小學、初中及高中教育階段宗教科成績優異及積極參與宗教活動的學生,教區天主教教育委員會於2019/2020學年起設立「聖伯多祿獎」,獎項內容包括獎座、獎狀及獎學金。而揀選聖人伯多祿作為獎項主題,是因為在福音中耶穌基督曾委託伯多祿牧養衪的羊群,成為教會的磐石;如同天主教會開辦天主教學校一樣,期望天主教學校成為青年信仰生活培育的重要場所,並恪守傳遞福音的使命,牧養羊棧中的年青人,讓他們看見基督的真光。


As an encouragement for Primary, Junior and Senior Secondary graduating students from Diocesan schools who have excellent performance in religious subjects and are actively participating in religious activities, the Diocesan Catholic Education Commission has newly introduced the “St. Peter’s Award” starting in the academic year of 2019/2020, awarding a trophy, a certificate and scholarship to students recommended by their schools. The award is named after St. Peter because he is the foundation of the Roman Catholic Church as the leading Apostle as well as the first Pope, and to whom Jesus has reinstated to feed and take care of His sheep. Catholic schools share this important mission of shepherding young people and cultivating faith in them, showing them the true light of the world.



教委會辦事處主任陳庭鋒表示,「聖伯多祿獎」是體現了天主教澳門教區對宗教教育的重視:「天主教學校的開辦是以耶穌基督的精神作為根基,因此宗教教育在校內是無處不在的。就一所天主教學校的整體課程設計及安排而言,雖然每周只設有一至兩堂宗教課,但學校的宗教教育並不只限於此,學生每天早上、下午上課前及午飯前的祈禱,組織學生參與教區舉辦的聖像出遊等,都希望給予學生接觸及認識天主教信仰的機會,有些是透過知識傳授;有些是透過學生親身感受。」陳主任更欣喜部分獲獎者為非教友學生,他續說:「此獎項並不只是為教友而設,而是開放給每一位願意接受、積極學習及參與的同學。當然,獎項對教友學生而言,是表揚他們在校內為信德作證,而對非教友學生之言,獎項亦好比一顆信仰的種子,期望未來能結出豐盛的果實。」


Mr. Stephen Chan Teng-Fong, Office Director of the Diocesan Catholic Education Commission, explains that the “St. Peter’s Award” reflects the importance of religious education as viewed by the Diocese of Macao, “Jesus Christ is the foundation of all Catholic Schools, for this reason the presence of religious education shall be felt everywhere in a school. Consider the overall curriculum and lesson plans, students can still experience the religious atmosphere beyond their one or two religious studies lessons per week. From the morning and afternoon prayers before class, to the intra-school organisation of students’ participation in processions held by the Diocese, opportunities for students to learn about or experience the faith are indeed abundant.” Mr. Chan is also glad that the first recipients of the Award comprises both Catholic and non-Catholic students, “this Award was not established only for Catholic students but for all those who are willing to learn and actively participate. For Catholic students, this award is undeniably the best testimony of their Faith, but for non-Catholic students, the award is like a seed of Faith that shall bear much fruit in the future.”


 


本年獲獎學生合共14人(名單詳見此網頁),而相關獎項的獎學金及其他支出,均由本澳一眾熱心教友及社會人士捐助,以體現教會內之共融及團結,並表達社會對莘莘學子的關懷及薪火相傳之意。有關「聖伯多祿獎」之更多詳細,可瀏覽此網頁
