Welcome to Term 3 - what a busy term we have ahead of us in the celebration of our faith!
Confirmation Parent/Child Meeting: Wednesday 31st July ~ 7pm ~ St. Patrick's Church.
Parish School Mass: Saturday 10th August @ 5pm all families are welcome to join in the Parish celebration.
It was an absolute privilege to welcome our grandparents to our celebrations yesterday. We thank all grandparents and families for celebrating Mass with our school community and for joining us for morning tea. The children very much enjoyed showing you their learning spaces and sharing their work with you. You can view photos on our website galleries page
For those grandparents who were unable to join us today, Fr Joel prayed a special blessing for all grandparents during Mass. This blessing is also for you.
Lord our God, we ask your blessing upon our great grandparents,
grandparents and all who take their place for us.
We thank you for them, for their love, their care, their generosity.
We thank you for their wisdom and leadership,
for their joy, for the many talents and gifts they share with us.
Help us to show our love and gratitude to them always.
We ask you to bless them as they continue their journey of faith and love.
To be with them in their joys, anxieties and pain.
Grant them peace and harmony as they continue to share their lives with all of us
God of our ancestors, you bless and protect us. With thankful hearts we honour those who are our heritage, our home, and our roots.
Help us to learn more about your love for us through the example of our grandparents.
We ask this through Jesus our brother, with the help of Saint Anne and Saint Joachim.
We make this prayer through Christ our Lord.
