The Year 2 children and their parents attended the First Reconciliation meeting in the Church last Wednesday evening. The children talked with Fr Joel about their Baptism, the Parable of the Forgiving Father (The Prodigal Son) and their understanding of God’s great love for them.
All Year 2 and their families will gather for a picnic with Fr Joel on Thursday, 14th November. A separate note has gone home outlining this event.
We continue to prayer for these children and their families as they prepare to receive the healing sacrament of Reconciliation on Wednesday, 20th November.
What an amazing day we had on Thursday at our Mission Day! Again, the generosity of our school community has been extraordinary! We raised more than $1650.00!! This money will help Sr Stan care for the children in Ghana who are poor, who have to have jobs as young children, who live with disabilities and those who don't receive a good education.
All Saints Day
Last Friday we celebrate All Saints Day. The Feast of All Saints is a rich and beautiful tradition within the Church. It honours those who have died, it reminds us that we are part of a wider communion of holy people, and it affirms our faith in God’s loving fidelity to life.
National Prayer Campaign for Drought
The Catholic Church in
Australia is dedicating the month of November 2019 as a time to pray for those affected by crippling drought conditions and to pray for the gift of rain.
Parishes, schools, families and other Catholic communities across the country are being encouraged to participate in the National Prayer Campaign for Drought, which also invites people to provide assistance to those most in need. The month of prayer is an additional response to the local work being done in affected communities.
We invite families to pray together for those affected by drought.
National Prayer for the gift of rain, the people affected by drought, rural communities and for support services
In wisdom and love you created our earth
to sustain us and give us life.
We turn to you now in faith, hope and love
