A big thank you to our Year 5/6 teachers and students for organising our Opening School Mass. It was lovely to see so many parents there, and although distanced, still together as a community. Fr Norvin joined us for the first time and spoke of the links between the old and new testament. Topology exists throughout the Bible in many places, and it is nice to draw connections between the testaments giving us a deeper understanding of the scriptures.
Ash Wednesday is a time of fasting, prayer and almsgiving that leads us into Easter. Year 1 (assisted by our Year 4 Students) led the school in celebrating Ash Wednesday yesterday. Thank you, Miss Mead and Year 1, for organising this beautiful mass. Fr Trenton was back on board and sharing with us his words of wisdom about listening with our hearts this Lenten season.
Pope Francis’ message for us this year is that of renewing our faith, hope and love. We can all do with a little renewal sometimes and reminder of those things that are important in life.
“In our Lenten journey towards Easter, let us remember the One who “humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross” (Phil 2:8). During this season of conversion, let us renew our faith, draw from the “living water” of hope, and receive with open hearts the love of God, who makes us brothers and sisters in Christ.”

Enrolment notes have been sent home. Thank you to those who have returned these to school ready for the program to begin. Year 5/6 Students are invited to enrol in the Sacrament of Confirmation and Year 4 Students, Reconciliation and Eucharist.
